This popped up in my subscriptions, and I realize I never updated.
In October 2014, the dealer from whom I bought the RLX called to say that they'd got a Sport Hybrid Advance after all. They called me right when they were unloading it.
I hesitated for a bit (meaning a few minutes) because I knew I'd take a bath on the previous car, which I'd bought because everybody said that we'd never get the Sport Hybrid or, if we did, it'd be 80 grand.
But, in the end, I drove over there and did it. To their credit, they gave me much more than they should have for the first RLX, and as I watched their site, I saw my first RLX sell for quite a bit less than they'd given me for it.
I appreciate what they did to get me in this car.
0-60 in the production car is still not solidly documented, but about a half dozen of us can testify that it is under 6 seconds.
30 mpg average.
Bellanova White Pearl + Seacoast interior would have been my absolute last choice for a car. LOL....
You had to take what the dealer got. Some dealers NEVER got a Sport Hybrid, some dealers only got the Tech Package, and no dealer had a choice of packages or color combinations.
I have to say, though, that I've got used to it. The Bellanova is a much more attractive color to live with than I'd anticipated and there has been absolutely zero indigo transfer or any other problem with the Seacoast interior.
