Final drive ratio on the CVT2's is 2.41:1. That's as high as it will go mechanically. You wanna convert your caliber to an FD II?

FD 1 yes, but not II. An AWD w/ lock and a stickshift would be great! The caliber's lack of a stick shift AWD option bugs me.

I really like that Nav system. The wife wanted me to get one so that she wouldn't have to read a map.

What all can the NAV radio do? Does it play normal DVDs too?

The NAV system doesn't play actual DVDs, but I have heard that you can get something done to make it work... not sure what though...

Other than that, it has a 6 disc CD, AM/FM, the NAV (obviously), and Sirius satellite (if equiped). It is nice to have the NAV radio with the Sirius and AM/FM because you can see the artist and song name. Apparently without the EVIC or NAV, there is no way to see the Sirius station (let alone the artist and titile).

The NAV radio is also nice if you have the UConnect hands-free system because the name and number comes up on the screen when you make/receive a call.

which 4x4 option do you have freedom drive 1 or 2?
only reason I ask is because I have FD1 and the stupid firestone tires that the dealer screwed up on and I am planning on replacing them with what you have. you already have more ground clearance than mine and I am wondering if the FD2 has a lift as well as the larger tires

What kind of gas mileage are you getting? My wife-to-be really wants one, but she does a lot of driving and needs something that gets really good mileage.

I have the FD1... I think the FD2 has an extra inch of ground clearance with the same tires.

My average MPG has been 23-24 (mostly city)... which is pretty good. It's a big improvement from my 2001 Ford Escape V6 which got about 18-19 MPG. I have about 1500 miles in it so far, so I think the MPG should get a little better.
