Agreed...but it beats that damn shovel spade grill they've used over the previous decade.

Man that's a sweet color combo. My wife's lease is coming up next spring. This was on my radar ever since they ditched that FUGLY beak grill.
However, my frontrunner is the upcoming 2020 Lincoln Aviator. With the Velar a close second. I definitely want to get updates from you over next 6 months.

Keep in mind, you asked for this rant...so...

When I bought mine, gas was about $4 a gallon, so it made sense at the time. When it dropped to $2 a gallon about a 2 months later...and diesel was still at $4.50 for another 4 or 5 months, not so much. Being a diesel owner, you start to see these trends where gas drops and diesel does not. PA fuel tax is extremely high, and it's even higher on diesels.

From there, the VW scandal allowed for a re-tune of all diesels that dropped mpg by 2MPG (was 27-28 when I started, 25-26 after) and created a beautiful new limp home mode when there were issues with the regen process. I didn't ask for this to be done, dealer just did it (at the time, we really didn't know what the VW issues really were thought)

So, lets discuss new diesels and the regen.
-You need to either tow with the diesel constantly, or drive these things on the highway constantly. This new process does not allow for short distances. When I broke my ankle and was forced to drive the only auto I owned, my short trip to work wouldn't allow for a regen to go...and the exhaust filled up. A trip to the dealer and $350 later for a manual regen that can only be done at the dealer, and we're back in the game.
-So my wife starts driving it, her longer distances to work, and a couple weeks later, "Exhaust almost full - drive on the highway", but it's my kids graduation party, shit to do...goes to her mom's - goes to the store, "exhaust full, limp home mode". Another trip to the dealer - another $350 - and a talk to by the mechanic telling me I really need to drive this on the highway. 90,000 miles in 4 years, I'm not sure how much more highway I can do.

-Friday - wife calls me about another "get your ass on the highway message". So instead of coming home, she gets on the highway and drive 15 miles for no reason. Message goes away - and I look to trade it in. I'm out.

Jeep realized they had an issue with the regen filter (diesel version of a catalytic as best I can tell) and they extended the warranty to 8 years 80,000 for having so many failures. Jeep would not look at it for me, as I was at 85,000 when all this started. Cost to replace - $4000 to $8000.

Add to this, $200 oil changes (that's what it cost me to do myself...not the dealers charge, those are $350). As it requires almost 9 quarts of a special synthetic that only Pennzoil and mopar have - and 3 filters. Add to that DEF fluid that needs added (about 8 gallons every 8000 miles). Not much of an issue, until you get the "Out of DEF - 150 more miles of driving" messages.

With that, I'll never own again, won't recommend, and will pity those that have.

Thanks - Fully the reason I wouldn't look at the 2018's they had on the lot...I don't know what the designers were thinking with that grill they had. I didn't consider the MDX since the wife said she wanted to downsize...but that's a nice ride too (with more room and three row seating if needed).

Interesting I have an x5d and tow a bit with it. Gas mileage has been good particularly compared to a gas pickup. My wife bought a vw sportwagen tdi 2 months before the scandal happened. She got to drive the car for 2 years for free. I've only seen upside. That was also her favorite car she has owned.

I always get the RDX and NSX confused? We would want the larger version if so.

So - one should never confuse the NSX with anything, as that's the 150-200K 2 seater sports car.

MDX is the larger of the two and holds 7. RDX is the smaller, sportier model.

I'm sure it's so older people can see it from far away. Hopefully it won't be so 'in your face' painted black.
