Re: Autoweek Review

Thanks. It seems like a fair review. A little on the light side, mostly discussing features, but not bad. That's probably to be expected though as they certainly don't have many miles to go by at this point. Wish they were accurate with the 15 percent improvement on fuel economy!

Unfortunately, most of their "First Drives" are a little light on details, and usually just quick impressions.

I'm sure the fuel mileage they saw is based on short duration, lots of hard acceleration and on a new engine. Hard to tell if its really representative.

Lets see how Laureljoke does on her 900 mile drive from Texas...

Unfortunately they're notorious for posting a review, it goes out in their daily email (which I get), and then a few hours later its gone...

Not sure why that happens with them, unless they yanked it for publishing too early. We'd heard there was a two week "embargo" on reviews after the press even that was held last week.

I'm guessing the 2 week period isn't up yet and they accidentally leaked it.... which means davewq is on top of the report sightings!

I'm sure it will be back up in a few days. Honestly, it talked mostly about features (pretty common knowledge at this point) and there was very little driving impression.

Re: Autoweek Review
