    Yes, that's what I assumed when I got it. Fine with me as long as it works, and we all have the 8 year unlimited km drive unit warranty now anyway.

    I'm driving a Jeep today! Grand Cherokee. Hate to be back to ICE, but it's actually kinda handy because I have to move a bunch of stuff.

    (Mind you, my Model S would have done the job. The loaner wouldn't because of the fancy seats that don't fold down.)

    Fancy seats that don't fold down? Do the rear seats in new vehicles no longer fold down?

    I dunno... the seats in this car are different, two positions with a center armrest and cup holders. I didn't see a way to fold them, maybe I just didn't find it?

    We're considering trading in our 2013 for a 100D and although I'm willing to give up the extra space in the front trunk for all wheel drive, it would be a bit much to give up on folding rear seats.

    Could they be the executive seats that they made for a while?

    They are indeed the discontinued Executive seats!
    They were probably discontinued because of this reason!

    Seriously! They severely diminish the utility of the vehicle.

    I think they were introduced because of the Chinese market. Apparently some wealthy people over there expect to be driven around, and to sit in the back.

    That is correct those were the executive seats mainly ordered and used for people that are getting driven around.

    Essie came home yesterday, and she's working correctly.

    Only weird thing is that twice now the glove compartment has popped open while the car was locked.

    Oh, that. You've got either gremlins, or squirrels.

    Now the windshield washers don't work. The motor never runs. I'm assuming someone unplugged a connector during the great wiring hunt, and forgot to reattach it.

    Not a minor issue in an Ottawa winter...

    When I was a kid, my dad had a car with no washers (they were an option way back then on this particular car). He kept a plastic squeeze bottle like you might put catsup or mustard in full of water under the seat. When he needed a wash, he'd roll down his window, reach out and give it a squirt!

    When we first got married we had a rusty old Honda Accord, and it kept having problems with the windshield washers. I did the spray bottle thing for a while.

    If you're on the highway you have to slow down to do it, otherwise it just blows back.

    Reminds me of the story of the Canadian woman who invented the windshield wiper. As her husband was leaning out the door wiping the windshield with a rag to clear off the rain she said to herself "There's got to be a better way of doing this."
