Quietest Diesel Yet!

ReviewThe look is very similar to the Chrysler Pacifica. The diesel engine is quiet, but the 7 speed transmission can be a little slushy and stumbled changing gears during easy acceleration (needed a reprogram). Everything seems to be tied to the computer, from the radio to the taillights. Needs to be able to readily accept a trailer hitch and harness. Some of the driver controls need better ergonomics such as the seat adjustment, clock, radio. AND there are counterintuitive RED lights to indicate a climate control function is operating. Bluetooth should be standard in a car of this class. Parktronic is essential due to poor sightlines.
Best FeaturesDiesel engine is QUIET. Interior space. Seats. Ride. Variable auto wipers. Parktronic.
Worst FeaturesBetter ergonomics. Bluetooth should be STANDARD. Change from RED lights for climate controls. Add a red light to each door when opened for safety (like Volvos). A trailer hitch setup should be allowed as dealers are left out to dry on this matter with NO support from MBA.
