After shopping around for a few weeks and not finding the XLT 4WD with no options I decided to treat myself to this one. It has the 202A package with Nav, moon roof and 20's. So far I like it a lot.

I was surpised at how much more "connected" the steering feels with the 20's over the 18's.

Thats funny. I must have come across 3 or 4 of those while shopping. The tan is too light for me. Me kid and dog would wreck it in short order.

I'm loving it so far. The heated seats couldnt have come at a better time.

We took delivery of our 2012 w/13,200 miles on it last night.
The Red with the Tan interior is the only color scheme my wife
likes.

She passed on buying a new/used Chevy Traverse because she
could not get the red paint with tan interior, only in black interior.

When you're buying used and want the Red paint/Tan interior is
hard to find, at least out here in SOCAL. Seems everyone here buys
cars painted black, white or silver???

Well, those three colors are pretty much the top three every year.

I heard a few months ago that researchers think white finally bumped silver as the most popular color because Apple has made the color (white) exciting.

I was originally looking for the Kodiak brown but there wasn't much out there with the charcoal interior. The light interior definitely does not fit my lifestyle.
