Re: HDC (Hill Descent Control) is great!

I love Hill Descent Control. I have a home high on a hilltop, approached via a 1.5mile private gravel driveway. It is really steep, and most of it only gets morning sun. The cost of snow-clearing and...

Re: summit leather interior

Re: DPF 80% full message for short trip or city drivers

Since I took possession of my diesel last June, I have never seen a regen warning. In that time I have driven ~6500 miles and have yet to add any DEF.

Re: Overland vs summit

Re: Anyone regret getting a Summit

Nearly right: the discount applies to the 995 destination fee, too. So with that minor adjustment I think the total would be $49,952.68
