Any preference out there on which VCM product to go with? I know there is an S-VCM Controller as well. Any pros/cons with going with one over the other?

I have read both websites online and it seems like a toss up on which one to go with. Any users have any opinions?

Thanks

Before I purchased, I also read the reviews and even the instruction manuals for the various products. I wish I could say I picked the best bang for the buck, but they all seemed to do the same thing. I think I went with what was selling the best and had the best customer support. I think you would be happy with any of the popular brands.

I went with the S-VCM and it works great IMHO

I recently purchased and installed the VCM tuner II device on my 2012 V6 crosstour. I have now had it installed and using it for a little over a month. So far, it has worked as advertised, and the eco mode has not activated once since it has been installed. This means that I have been running on all 6 cylinders all of the time. The tuner II device is an active device, that is relatively easy to install and uses the battery for the 12V supply. It does have a fuse that is easily removed if desired. As others have said, running on 6 cylinders all the time is like driving a new car. I am pleased with how the car runs and I am not seeing some of the issues I saw before. One thing I have observed is that I tend to drive faster now (was recently pulled over for driving 42 in a 30 zone). All things considered I would not hesitate to recommend the device since I haven't found any reasons to not recommend. The temp gauge sits a tick lower than where it used to sit, but the gas mileage I am getting now is at least as good as what I was getting before (in my case about 26-28mpg around town and my commute to work). I will continue to monitor the gas mileage over the next few tank fulls to see if I can discern any real change. I was not really seeing a lot of the problems that a lot of other owners were concerned about, but my crosstour is almost 7 years old with only about 60K miles. I bought used (certified) with only about 8400 miles. It certainly is more fun to drive now.
