Having had a 2.5TP since May 28th and driven it halfway across the country—it's worth the wait.
I've been a dyed-in-the-wool, #ichimaiiwa Mitsusbishi loyalist since 1996. The CX-50 2.5TP is so good

Meatier, stickier rubber on lighter wheels will likely bring improvements, but I really can't say enough good things about these vehicles. It's hard enough waiting for dinner to be delivered these days. Keep the faith. This is the way.
