    FAT32. If using with a Mac, then you also go into Terminal (or use one of many free utilities) and delete the resource files and index folders and trash folder (if one exists).

    I organize carefully into folders to avoid using CDDB database. (Actually I used iTunes to keep them organized that way.)

    Update Update:

    When I originally updated the uConnect system and Navigation software-- the car's climate control temperature was 3/4 toward the hottest setting. It's been June/July-- I live in South Florida. I know it was set to A/C at the coldest setting.

    Since then, there have been a couple instances of the car doing this on it's own. Happened this morning again. Off to the dealership anyway. I'm having a total love/hate with this car. I want to love it. It's really shown to be a better car than the cars in it's class, after some more experience in Uber cars over vacation and summer drinking season :) and after having driven my first Porsche 911. That car hurt my kidneys.

    So do I need to buy a maxcare bumper to bumper?

    Given the problems you seem to have had, if you plan to keep the car for any length of time beyond the warranty, I would recommend it.

    I drove my High-School (1998) neon from 1997 until 2009, and the 2008 PT that replaced it until 2016-- I'm definitely a keeper, no constant trading for me! Although I'm superstitious enough to think my problems are because I bought a 2015, and didn't wait for a 2018 model :p

    Also, heightened expectations.

    Everyone liked to talk about how premium it was. How it was changing the game. While it is nice for a mass-market domestic compact-- the reality is that it is a cheap European mid-size built in Illinois. This causes me dissonance. My brain and my heart don't know which way to go with it. Do I love it's crass nature? Do I love how I can feel every pebble through the steering wheel, or that I can feel the friction of the brakes through the pedal? Do I love the economy, or do I want to trade 4mpg for a seat that isn't the automotive equivalent of a Hermann Miller Aeron chair?

    Those kind of things keep me on a fence about it.

    You have 4 years from the inservice date or 48K miles to get it. If you decide to sell the car I believe you can cancel the warranty for a pro-rated amount plus a fee of something like $75.

    My brother loved his. Said he felt like be was driving a go-kart.

    It does feel like a go-kart.

    A really big, heavy, automobile body on a tiny little go-kart chassis, with a tiny little go-kart engine.

    If I'd purchased new, I would have!

    Cornering really is very good. Even the Aero is really nimble and its tires aren't designed for that.

    How much economy will the car lose if I decide to go with a nice Pirelli that isn't eco rated/low rolling-resistance? I'm really excited to put new tires on this thing, but I'm going to ride these crap Kumhos until they die. The factory tire on this car is the worst.

    Also brakes. I can't wait to put some comfortable brakes on the thing to see how those two transform it.

    And shocks. lol

    And seats where I won't feel the support frames!

    p.s.

    I also want to add the big gas tank from the 2.4l! Can y'all imagine what the car's range would be with that tank instead of the little one the Aero models got?!?

    My seats are great. I have no problem with the seats.
    The tank's fine. Yes, it's little.
    I don't think the change in fuel economy is noticeable when you get a better tire.

    Eco tires (Bridgestone in my case) were horrid on my 2017 Durango compared to the 2015 Durango with "normal" tires. I'll gladly spend a tiny amount more on gas for a better (quieter, smoother, more traction in wet/snowy weather) tire.

    Thanks Valiant-- I do feel like just about every quibble I've got with the car will be remedied with a better grade of replacement parts in the brakes and tires. The rest of the car is pretty ok! Thanks again--
