Silver,

Yeah their mileage in town does suck... It hasn't gotten any better from 2012 when I drove our first one to now with the 2018. The 2018 is much more responsive though so that's good but does nothing for fuel economy. grin2

Mine isn't loud but I have the GT trim level so it has more noise deadening insulation than the almost base model my dad has which is a 2012 and his is noisier. My dad went to end of the roll and bought a piece of padded commercial type carpet that was great in colour and put it down over the factory black carpet and did a good job cutting it around the seats and tucking under the trim panels / floor boards here/there and that made a huge difference to the noise. He did this when he got it from me (formerly my fleet vehicle for work), so it wouldn't show the dog hair like the black carpet does. Maybe that's an option for you.

To me mine sounds like a buzzing motor with a shhhhhhh type sound coming from the exhaust as I moderately to heavily accelerate as the exhaust gas rushes out the back pipe. If I take off from a light normally I don't hear the exhaust at all and just hear the buzzing of the motor which really makes it sound electric more than mechanical. But this is all probably related to the insulation my trim level has.

It also has blue mood lighting on the ceiling on either side of the DVD screen console. It's different but it's kind neat. Mine is black and not white though...

Mine is the S trim, has the “sport tuned” suspension but not the full “sport” suspension. It rides better than my Citadel ever did! I’d love to take the top of the line luxury model for a spin to compare it, I imagine that one is like driving on a cloud

I haven't driven in an "S" series only the 300 and 300c which if memory serves me correctly are the same suspension in those models. The SRT line of vehicles have some nice ride feel but sportier feedback suspension. I know my Caravan GT with the self-leveling non-air-bag suspension has a nice ride to it while offering a more sportier feel and boy does it corner. Without self incriminating here I can tell you it does quite well on the highway at higher speeds. grin2
