Was in NJ over the New Years holiday and scored a 2015 Fuji White HSE w/ Contrast Roof with less than 2k miles on it. I'd test driven this model a couple times before but never found one with the options/accessories/appearance I wanted. This one has it all - pano roof, ambient light, illuminated entry, heated front rear and steering, and the auto hatch.

I'm back at work in Boston now, but picking up the car this weekend.

A few questions for the other owners out there...

What's this SD card error business that I keep seeing?
I don't really play music off SD cards, I use bluetooth in my other vehicle almost 99.5% of the time for music.

I'm looking into getting a set of roof rails installed - dealer quoted me almost 1100 for the parts and install... I saw a thread here that had the rails priced at less than 500, and installation was simple with basic hand tools.
Anyone done this with the pano roof and can give me a little more confidence?

For fuel - do you guys all fill up with premium gas?
What's range like on a full tank with mostly highway driving?

I seriously can't wait to get this thing home.
It'll be nice to have a new small vehicle to drive around town (my other vehicle is a 2015 F-150 SuperCrew...not the best city car)
I've had a 2007 Rav4 v6 as my daily driver since about 2008, but with more than 120,000 miles on it now and the fuel economy never edging past 17-18 with mostly city/a little highway driving... it was time to look for something more modern.

Anyway... good to be here. I'm sure I'll have more questions later :)

Congrats! Which dealer did you buy from? I picked mine up a week prior at the dealer in Parsippany :)

The Nav runs off the SD card, so you cant use it for music / mp3 or whatever.

I'm on my 2nd tank of gas, but no idea the full range because the fuel gauge shows empty before you are close to running out (seems to have large margin of error), and my 2nd fill up the pump clicked before completely filling the car (NJ gas attendants, sheesh).

Made a trip to Albany (170+ mile each way) during NYE, the trip up average was 25.7 mpg when my gf drove, and the trip down I average 29 mpg when I drove.

Hey there fellow Bay Stater, perhaps I'll see you around. I can count the # of DSs I've seen in the Greater Boston area on one hand.

I continue to experience the SD card error, exasperating me to no end. I've read that it might be due to other items in the storage box jostling it. I'm going to start driving around with nothing in the box and see if that makes a difference. Even if that is the root cause, it still need to be addressed somehow bec. an empty storage box to me is useles . . .

I got mine from Prestige - in Paramus.

You might! Where are you located? I can count them on one hand too ... I've seen 1. Just one.

Interesting on the SD card issue - I'll have to keep an eye on that later.
27-29 mpg highway ain't bad.
