    love the concept but the vehicle I purchased has whistling mirrors, rattles behind the dash, rattles in the seat assemlies and many plastic parts which simply are extremely loose or flopping about. Did I get a lemon?

    Take it to the dealer, and talk to them about it. All of them I have driven have seemed pretty rattle free, but I haven't driven one off road.

    thanks but I have been to the dealer who has fixed three of the fit and finish problems for me. Excellent dealership ... However, I have encountered a total of 20 defects in the course of searching for rattles and whistles. Most of the defects relate to thin walled plastic parts held inadequately in place by plastic snap retainers. Seems to me that either all the parts are out of spec, the wrong retainers were used, or the design team has not conducted sufficient testing to verify their designs. These problems really take the shine off this vehicle.
