Fantastic first impression and having seen this vehicle personally, it is gorgeous! Although I was the one to recommend Century Dodge, I can't say I was worried that your experience would be any different than mine. There was no doubt in my mind they would exceed your expectations as they have mine. I too have never had a more pleasant car buying experience.
I'm highly encouraged by your fuel economy on the trip home.
As to the 'pokey' acceleration off the line, I think you'll find the acceleration out of Eco mode to be quite sufficient, particularly for a heavy V6. Eco mode works very effectively and I use it most of the time. It's just doing it's job.
She'll get used to the rotary shifter pretty quickly. After 2 weeks in mine, I hardly ever change the volume instead now!
I think it's great that she can set the seat for easy entry and exit and can then get in and get moved to her memorized position. I'm not sure if it lowers or just extends back though. Both would be great for her!
I know it was a long road for you, involving some tough decisions but I'm thrilled that she is happy with it. I'm guessing your kids like it over the minivan?
