Re: Finally! A 2012 Summit Is Mine!

So in the end, I managed north of 22 mpg for my round trip to Parkersburg WV in the last two days. (just over 900 miles) 66mph on cruise all the way. The number actually touched 22.7 for a short period of time just before I got off the Interstate for the last few miles to home. Very pleased. I'm also impressed with the Adaptive Cruise Control. It's smart.

Re: Finally! A 2012 Summit Is Mine!

JRNYC, I used Sport Mode most of the time so that I had the Aero profile at any speed. I flipped to Auto when any rain-drops were present to restore the traction control. I frankly like how the vehicle looks in Sport Mode and wish there was a button for "Aero" profile without losing the traction control. Honestly, I don't think it matters between Sport and Auto at a steady pace anyway since there's little shifting going on. I just like that nose down a little Yea, I know, seems stupid. I have another shorter run this weekend for a family event, also on Interstate all the way, so I'll leave it in Auto and see if there is any difference. I suspect not...

The winter chill exterior with the saddle/black interior is a really nice combination. Very nice!

Nice rig! Love that steering wheel to. Why that isn't an option on the base Laredo I'll never know, the wood matches perfectly with it. Enjoy!

I'm really enjoying it. Also very pleased with the vehicle to-date. Through quirks of fate, I'm spending a lot more time and miles in it than I ever expected due to some business and personal travel needs that cropped up right as I was buying it. It's comfortable, getting better fuel economy than I expected and just a pleasure to drive. I'm not an off-roader (unless you count traveling across the lawn and up the hill through the trees to get to my utility trailer "off-roading" LOL) so the creature comforts for highway driving are getting top-billing.

I did have a small rattle in the courtesy light module which the dealer quickly rectified when I had my initial (early) oil change last Friday. The courtesy light lenses were slightly loose...and that is no longer the case.

Sweet color combo. Wouldn't have thought of that pairing but it looks great.
