Deep Scarlet Pearl *2019 Elite AWD*
Last week my wife and I went down to Punta Gorda, Florida from Charlotte, NC. to visit her brother. First and foremost I need to say I know where we're retiring to and it ain't Charlotte! This was the first decent trip that we put on the PP other than the daily racking up of mileage of every day living like going to work. All in all put on about 1300 miles between highway and tooling around down there and the Passport did great. Really comfortable for a 10 hour trip (which we spit the driving between us), both drivers and passengers seat were great. Plenty of leg and head room with great butt and back support. I turned the VCM tuner off via my ground switch and was surprised how little the Passport used the VCM being I was able to monitor through my ScanGauge II. Averaged 22-24 mpg at 80 mph (that is with 265 18" tires). My only beef was with the Garmin navigation. On the return trip somewhere near Stark, Fl. the navi completely wigged out and had us in the middle of nowhere, not on a road and repeating recalculating over and over. Ditched the Garmin hooked up my Samsung and used Waze for the remainder of the trip. I also have to note that on the trip down it rained from the minute we left Charlotte till about an hour of arriving at Punta Gorda, and I mean it poured to the point I though we needed an ark; and the Continental Terrain Contact AT did fantastic, never hydroplaned and tracked dead on. Absolutely no question I would get these again. Which is good because when I retire, Florida is known for it's pop up thunder storms!
