Re: Thoughts on my Granite D Citadel with Blu-Ray

Some interior shots...hopefully for the benefit of future shoppers. Light frost beige interior tends to be hard to come by on the dealer lots. Note that light frost beige is the only interior color on the '14 that has a light color headliner. (Black and Tan interiors have a black headliner.)

Re: Thoughts on my Granite D Citadel with Blu-Ray

Blu-Ray Related. Note that you can play any A/V input (Disc, AV/HDMI from any seat) to any screen. So you can, for example, view the HDMI input from seat 1 on the screen for seat 2.

Interestingly...there is a "parent control' feature (not pictured) in the front Uconnect screen that allows you to view or "listen in" on what's playing from either of the back seat screens.

There's a switch on the side (upper right) of the remote that allows the user to control either screen 1 or screen 2.

And a few shots showing how the full center console "flips forward" to accommodate level loading floor:

The pic is a little deceiving. (I had the same reaction when I saw the pic vs. seeing it in person.) From the pics...it looks like the passenger side is spot on, and the driver side has an issue. In reality, the entire hood appears to be off axis slightly, causing the passenger front corner (next to the headlight0 to be too close to the fender, and the driver side front to be too far away. So the result in these pics does look like a bad "stamp".

Could that possibly be a driver-side fender issue instead of the hood?

I have black interior on my '14 w/ a light grey headliner. Originally I wanted a light frost beige interior, but that fact that I have two young kids I felt that color choice wouldn't be wise.

Re: Thoughts on my Granite D Citadel with Blu-Ray

Joey -

Great pictures - the Granite looks great all around. Glad the "maiden" voyage went well. Nothing like errands and a weekend drive to get comfortable with a new vehicle.

We too are happy with the light frost beige. I could not have taken a black headliner, and my wife was thrilled with the black carpet (she didn't realize it was going to come that way).

We paid $2185 for the lifetime max care ($100 ded), so in the ball park with everyone else.

Good info on the 5 year inspection and the buyout potential. I got the official contract yesterday, but haven't had a chance to read all the details.

Wow...I did not realize the black interior had the light headliner. Good to know! Good call on the color with young kids. Mine are old enough now that I don't have to worry about markers.
