If you turn off the VDC the active trace control is also deactivated.I like the Intelligent Cruise Control.
I don't find the Blind Spot Warning all that helpful. The indicator should have been placed on the side mirrors.
The remote engine start will be useful if you have a lot of snow.
I wish I could turn off the Active Trace Control to know how much of it adds to the driveability of the JX. Maybe test drive a car with one and without one?
If you have the money and are planning to keep the car for long, take it.
I agree, Texas summers mean 90+ in the morning, loading up kids breaks a sweat. Worse when the car has been baking in the 110+ sun for 4 hours.If you live in a place wiht hot summer, it also worht it with the remote start and AC.
