New '11 GC Laredo X owner

Just wanted to say hello and that this site is awesome for info and for the members helping out each other from what I can tell. I've always bought GM vehicles in the past and have had very good luck with them, but the new GC's really impressed me, and I decided to try one out. Got an '11 Laredo X with sunroof, nav, and V6 (no need for Hemi that I could tell), and have been very impressed so far.

I was originally considering a '12 Durango because of the 3rd row (my whole purpose for getting an suv was because of a recent addition to the family), but decided didn't have to have the 3rd row, and really liked the classy looks and dimensions of the GC better. Have 1500 trouble free miles on it so far. Only thing I have noticed was that my '11 GC (bought new) didn't quite have the accelration of the Durango I test drove with the same V6, and thought to myself a tranny retune would probably fix that. Imagine my surprise when I found this site and read that a TSB fix was actually issued for this problem. Not a big deal, so will have dealer look at it at first oil change.

Been very pleased with my decision and enjoying it every time I drive it.

Re: New '11 GC Laredo X owner

Actually, just remembered I do have one complaint. Went with the '11 Laredo X because I could get it at the same price as the '12 Durango Crew, but the GC had leather, heated seats and was overall nicer looking. I was shocked today to find out when I went to Home Depot and needed to load some 8' boards into the GC that the front passenger seat did not fold flat as it did in the Durango with cloth seats. A small irritation that will not sway my impression that this is a very nice ride, but was it really too much to ask that the upgraded seats fold flat like the base model ones?
