Thats my gripe too. They can make a seat that slides a foot front to back. But cant make it fold flat haha.

Re: Let's Get Nit-Picky

I have only one little thing so far I'm not crazy about on my Equinox. The door panels and actually all the plastic interior pieces are hard as steel. I drive with my knee resting against the door panel and the other one resting against the console and it isn't long till I get sore and have to move them. I like to drive with my elbow on the window sill and rest my hand on the wheel and the shape and hardness of the plastic has caused my elbow to get bruised. My wifes Outback has soft padded interior and it is comfortable to drive long distance. No major complaints, that is all.

Re: Let's Get Nit-Picky

To be honest the seats not folding flat have been a good thing for me.

On larger items it lets me slide the over hang between the front seats and not lay them on the console. We have a Soap Box Derby car that would not fit if they were flat hitting the console as would the legs of our swing stand I brought home.

The angle is just enough to give me clearance.

Yes, but you can always use a wedge to prop things up, but your can't "wedge" things down. i, also, wish that they laid flat.

Re: Let's Get Nit-Picky

Love my '13 Terrain, but pressing hard to find a fault - I'd say the turning radius. No, it's not necessarily worse than competitors, but have you tried turning a Jeep WJ Grand Cherokee?? My wife's '04 Grand Cherokee has very similar exterior/interior dimensions as the Terrain, but that Jeep can turn on a dime! Wish all manufacturers would significantly improve their turning radius!!

Re: Let's Get Nit-Picky

As for MPG, I had a 2005 Vue V6 AWD and my 2013 Nox V6 seems to get better MPG (probably because of AWD)
Our 13 Nox is an LTZ and has power drive and passenger seats.
Wife would have liked to have dual zone AC.

Will dearly miss the fold flat front passanger seat the Vue had. Could carry 8' lumber inside the car so easily.

Needs the option to have a nice illuminated ashtray, and yes you non smokers can hiss all you want. That big cubby in the front middle is ripe for future mods from a HAM radio installation to a docking station, an inverter or other gismos.

Ok but where do I carry this said wedge when I make the impulse buy like I did with the swing and the stand.

The post went right over the console arm rest and if it had been flat there was no way I would have had anything to prop it up.

The long and short of it is that the non flat has helped me more to haul things I would not been able to haul vs. if it were flat. It was either my luck or just what works for me. Same on the Soap Box Derby car. Note too when I brought home the 60" TV last week the non flat floor was not an issue.

Note also on many fold flat seats they take away from the comfort. Many end up like park benches to make them fold flat. My HHR is not great and the GTP was a torture chamber.

Re: Let's Get Nit-Picky

The freaking doors won't stay open so I can take stuff out of the passenger side seat. Bruised right collar bone really good more than a couple times. Dealer fix was lubing door, insane.....

Whats with the radio dialing down all the time? On the Vue I never ever ever touch the volume knob.

Sounds like it is set to turn down the volume on start up.
Go into the menu and change the setting to your preferred volume.
It explains this in your manual.
