Thanks for that link...I had seen a snippet of it before, but worth the read now.

No fan of RFTs either, but if we leased it the CEO wouldn't care 'what tires', and neither would I as it would be 'their' problem in 3 or 4 yrs.

My CEO's '10 Hyundai Tuck Limited has run very well for 7 yrs, with only a couple of glitches all handled/covered under the warranty. Not a great car, as those earlier versions were so noisy/lack of sound deadening, that normal conversations at hwy speeds are impossible. And, the electric steering is like a bad motorboat from the '60s... But it's price point is almost a third less than the X1, and loaded to the fookin gunwales.

The X1 is interesting to me and to her, but the usual stuff we would want really cranks the price point, esp vs the plethora of other less expensive small suv like cars. BMW/MB are slightly delusion in their typical out the door price, imo.

But, a lease may be of interest though I am 'lease stupid'.

We shall see when we get back to our western NC Mtn Home.

If you get closer or do some serious looking/test drive I would be very interested in reading your valued opin.

And, it does get chilly in ATL area, in winter; a happy CEO is the deal.
