Re: I am getting spooked

Don't worry,

Almost 10,000 miles on my Laredo X 3.6l since Oct. 2010 and just did 4000 miles in a two week span.
It's been great and is shaping up to be the best car I've owned.

Re: HID fog lamps on US web site.

I thought it was a misprint too, they do make a real point of saying HID everywhere in the section. Not a small typo that's for sure.

Re: HID fog lamps on US web site.

Ya it's strange,
It's been on the site a long time now. I don't think it's true as none I've seen has HID fogs. Maybe late availability or something. The canadian site doesn't mention it at all.
