Hi and welcome. I think you'll be happy with your NB, I also did the commuting in an Explorer. Just about twice the mpg now :xmas:Ice06 said:Thank you all for the warm welcome & kind words. My commute is one of the key reasons I starting looking at the NBs. Couldn't find a TDI to fit my $ budget. But, I believe I'll be happy with the 2.0L compared to doing my large commute with our Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo.
