I would say the jury is still out on that one. Once they get here and can be used/abused in real service, then we'll be able to tell how it fares but until then, lets just hope it could be a contender. That's the first I've read about the trans popping out of gear. That kind of thing could be a pain in traffic and maybe not so good for the transmission either.....1st year models will have some bugs to get out of them, too, so this will weight into the consideration. I wish they would just get them here! Soooooooo impatient!!!
