    i love it. yes its my DD. i probably drive about 200 miles a week, and have no regrets. haven't noticed any change in gas mileage or tire wear, it does take some getting used to and the first few times in snow and ice are a little nerve racking but now that im used to it it i feel i have more control in bad conditions.
