Note for y'all: if you or your wife complains that the truck is hard to move when turning, first check to make sure your kids didn't select 4WD.

I was quite relieved to find that to be the issue last night.

LOL, yes actually. When she was describing it, I seriously thought "I thought I got rid of the garage queen." Then I thought "At least the PS pump is a lot easier to fix on this." Then it was, "Thank you Tahoe!"

I dunno, mine isn't pleasant either. I think it's a drawback to the electric assist.

I was also relieved that it was in 4H instead of 4L since she drove prob 20 miles yesterday at 50MPH. Kinda miss the old shifter lever on the floor for it. Much easier for the kiddos to play with a little knob than that thing was.

yeah, the kiddos like to hop in the front seat while the other one is being put into their car seat. Then it's a race to see how many buttons they can push or knobs to turn before we grab them. We went like 3 months thinking the dome light was burnt out in the Tiguan till we figured out there was a switch in the front that turned it off, which they had pushed at some point. It's never boring with them.

I have no say in any of this. No kids, not married... Stay up until 4am (even when I need to go to work). It also doesn't help that I drive the cheapest vehicle in my work parking lot lol
