Re: Anything they left out?

My 2001 Audi Allroad had it, as does my wife's 2004 RX330. On her car that's the only serious problem it's had, and was covered under warranty.

Re: No WK2 for me after all

It was an Infiniti FX45 (V8) - first year 2003 model. Up until last week it was the most reliable vehicle I've ever owned. The only replacement part to fail that maybe shouldn't have was the muffler...

I was waiting for the new GC to come out but my plans just changed. After just passing 100,000 miles I suddenly had an engine failure in my current SUV! The dealer advised that one cylinder had lost...

I'd go with the panoramic sun roof because I rarely have back seat passengers.

Re: Marchionne - 2011 GC is now flawless

If it really is "flawless" can we expect a 10 year, 100,000 mile bumper-to-bumper warranty?

Re: WKII Foot operated E-brake discussion

Re: WK2 Test Reports

Still very mysterious why there have been no actual road tests of the new GC - normally on new models you see quite a few before the official launch.

Re: Are you planning to buy a 2011 GC? What other models are you considering, if any

The option pricing on Mercedes and BMW models is very pricey. The ML models do not even come with standard leather - to add it's another $1,800 or so! I'm not one to spend a bunch of extra cash just...

Re: Are you planning to buy a 2011 GC? What other models are you considering, if any

Re: Are you planning to buy a 2011 GC? What other models are you considering, if any

Thanks for the responses. Too bad there is such a huge gap for towing between the V6 and Hemi. For example, the MDX is a V6 and is rated at 5,000 lbs, and the Pilot with less HP is at 4,500 lbs. It...
