Got my new blue MKC

Well, I guess I posted in the wrong section (intro), so I just redo it here.

Hello. I been research and test drive SUVs for the last half years and finally brought(lease) a new MKC three weeks ago.

Here is my car:
MSRP:$45925
Midnight Sapphire/White sand
Reserved group
+Cont cntrl damping suspension
+THX upgraded sound
+19" wheels
+Technology pack
+Climate pack
+Cargo mat

It has all the upgrades other than engine and AWD. I basically need a MKC with CCD, white sand, and panoramic roof, and I been told there was only one MKC in the west coast met my requirement. So I brought this one.

Since I am not sure about the resale value on MKC, I decided to do a 3 year pre-pay lease on it. Price wise, I got an offer based on invoice price-$2750 rebate. There was some additional fees for leasing including interest, so after 3 days of negotiation, I knocked another $3100 off. I end up trade my 2010 Nissan Altima 2.5S in, and walked off with one time payment of $5470 for a 3 years lease. Since it involved trade in, rebate and leasing fees including interest, the price was so complicated. My estimation was that the final price was $7000-$9000 off MSRP depending how you calculate it. That's about 15-19.5% off MSRP. Since it's a lease, the residual value was fixed, so all the saving were on the first 3 years, which made this a better deal for me.

So far, I love this SUV. The only two thing I am disappointed were the slow SYNC system including navigation, and the satellite radio sometime lost signal.

It looks fantastic! Especially with that backdrop and the color fits in well with nature.

Look, there will always be something, but those aren't really defining features.

Great photos and congratulations on the purchase. Also wondering where the pictures were taken. Scenery is beautiful.

Typical for the infotainment system to be the one bad part of a car. I'm looking forward to Apple and Google taking over that responsibility in the future.

I took one picture in Death valley and another in Kings Canyon.

Just wondering if our Sync 2 can be upgraded to the new Sync 3.

Unfortunately every where I read it is not possible to upgrade since the hardware is not the same either. I'd paid to have it upgraded it if were possible.

Yes, sad about missing out on sync 3. I would love to see better text message integration in the next systems. I am admittedly a "distracted driver" and need my texts read to me and an easier way to dictate texts (other than looking at my phone unsafely to hit the Siri dictation button)

Soon none of us may be driving at all with self driving cars...then we can text and watch video all we want while traveling!
Audi's piloted car is coming!

Speak about auto pilot, the adaptive cruise control and auto parking in our MKC are nice first step in that direction. I specially like the adaptive cruise control. I was able to drive on freeway for an hour without hit gas and brake. The SUV can handle 99% of the situation well, but just keep an eye on situations such as line merge. Adaptive cruise control need to be more sensitive in such case and keep a safe distance.
