I haven't seen a 4wd in LA yet. Not that we would ever need to consider it, but I'm very curious to see firsthand how they handle.
The second dealer said that the Honda crosstour with 4WD are all that way so I called customer relations in Calif and they are talking to my dealer for about a week now. I don't hold out much hope for Customer relations and Calif either.it would be good for a district rep to ride the vehicle fisrt handWe don't have that issue. Take it to another local dealer, if you have the option, and get a 2nd opinion.
I drove one yesterday and heard no axle noise at all. (had only 100 kilometers on it tho)My only complaint is the axle noise, I am trying to find out more about the active sound control/cancellation and why it does not address the noise issue I have with my new Cross Tour
