Hello All. I purchased a certified used 2015 PMC August 15. It had 12,200 miles on it, the "wagon" version with the 2nd row seats, back up camera, nice new Conti sneakers, it has Nav-TomTom, but no XM, no speakers in the plastic shelves in the cargo bay; it has some extras compared to the new 2016 PMCs I had been looking at: already had roof rails, fog lights, leather steering wheel cover, heated seats, POWER rear windows!.
I had the dealer add a full size spare kit (need to drop that spare and make sure i got what I paid for) and the trailer hitch.

I had been researching this class of vehicle for some time but a series of events prompted me buying now. I have a full time job as an engineer with a 35 mile rt daily commute and I also have a rental property a couple blocks up the street from my house. I have an '01 Astro AWD beater I use for the work on my house and rental apartments, and up until a freak storm July 18th, I had an '10 Hyundai Elantra wagon. My Elantra was CRUSHED by a tree.
As I said, I had been looking at this class of vehicle as a future replacement for the Astro, but I think this PMC will replace both the Hyundai wagon and the Astro. I LOVE the Astro, but it has SO many issues, it is a constant project, and i just don't have the time anymore.

I am feeling pretty good the last few weeks using the PMC for my rental prop chores. Getting my utility trailer on with the back up camera is beyond easy. I don't know how I ever did it without.
I've been getting 25.6 mpg around town.
Ran up to York Beach - 75 miles, 1.5 hr one way - all major state route and interstate - and I got 28.8 mpg.
Set up a Trip to isolate my commute and I am getting 26.8, as long as I don't lead-foot.

I need to tweak the stereo - needs bass - may not get an xm module. The phone media sync is really nice and the USB port too. I need to see what I have for Thule rails to fit for my ladders, toys.

So far, so good. Safe travels all.

Please remember to post City related posts on the PMC side of the forum so as to not confuse everyone!
