    I’ve never noticed that maybe it’s the white reflecting the sun on yours. All that new shiny paint lol

    It seems to happen most when I'm driving east and the sun is high in the sky. Yes you are right, shiny paint makes it worse. :)

    That’s what they said...if everyone who came in got to tool around for a while it’d have 300 miles on it in a week.

    I do have to check the LATCH ratings on our seats, but my wife wanted the captains anyway. Plus, a bench in a Platinum just seems weird.

    If I was seriously interested in buying one or placing an order, I would probably take exception to that and find another dealer.

    Yea, it mustve been ordered for someone who put a deposit on it. It makes no sense to deny a potential buyer from driving it.

    If I had pushed it they would have allowed it. I told them up front I was not buying that one as I wanted a Max and this was a standard length...so I get it.

    I assumed this when I saw how they tip/fold. I have the same issue as two of my kids are big enough to use the seat belt to secure their car seat. We have three kids and I keep going back and forth between getting captains seats vs bench. Have you thought of captains vs bench, how many kids etc?
