This past weekend my wife and I travelled to Mass from Pa. It was approx a 4.5 hour drive and was a pleasure. We average 68mph and I got roughly 20mpg the entire trip.

On Sunday we woke up to a nice little snow storm as we started heading south and the 9-7x handled really well. I put it in 2nd to start and it was very capable driving around the unplowed back roads of Mass.

All in all, it was a very comfortable trip in the 9-7x. I couldn't be happier with it.

A quick question.... does anyone else have problems putting their gas cap back on sometimes? Sometimes it just is so stubborn getting it to close. It's almost like the 'clutch' in the cap is too soft.

Might be time to talk to the dealer about it.

i have no problem with the gas cap. the only thing that could have been done is a secured gas door. it is very unEuropean. so is with the antenna. very American. other than these, it runs great
