havent had the sport for a winter yet. however prior cars, wand wash and never the ‘brush of paint death’. most car washes shut down for a few weeks here, due to our severe winters.
always dry the weatherstrips with a towel, or you taint getting inside.
i asked the gf to switch to eco mode while i was driving. she turned the transmission gear selector by accident. went into an immediate limp mode 😂. was like why no power wtf? and i saw the sport was in reverse. no harm done, simple accident.
i have the base. and compared to the other trims, its effin base lol. but, i didnt really want all the do-dads and add-ons even tho they are neat. all i wanted was a base suv with awd. i got it, and wouldnt change a thing. base looks dope with the blacked grille and black lettering.
also, blown away at how the rear diff unit is so exposed. should be some type of skid plate or something there.
really hoping there is aftermarket skid plates for these things soon.
i’m on holidays next week, and im gonna take it to a local sheet metal shop, see what they can figure out.
a couple things i noticed last night.
our road trip was very backroad, and we were on alot of gravel roads. we have no mudflaps, and the plastic claddings, rear subframe, and even the aluminum rear lower control arms rook a good beating…
