I agree %100!

The only thing I have to add is the 4x4 must be a v8 unless it is a cummins.

I drive this since Jan/Feb. With skinny snow tires, this car does not understand the concept of slippery roads or snow. And in summer, on ramps are fun. Gets 24-27 mpg most of the time, more like 24.5 mpg thanks to GR traffic

The car was optioned with a factory catback exhaust and short throw shifter, so that makes driving even more fun.

This was my DD up until about 2 weeks ago...




The LSX badge is just for show... or is it?



With 18mpg, it was good for a Jeep, but i got a sweet deal on this car...




Averaging 50+ MPG... VNT-17 Turbo, Chip, and some other goodies... the look on peoples faces is awesome when you roll coal on them in a jetta, or pull up to a diesel pump in a tractor car
