I wish I could drift but the fucking traction control is automatic and I can't turn it off. I love 4WD though.

Meh, i likes the 2door better. Your kids can fit in the regular version. Comfortably, that's another story.

It's funny when SUV drivers realize AWD doesn't mean shit when you're on the phone driving with 1 hand.

some people don't realize acceleration traction is better, but the brakes are the same as they always are.
