Used to DD my 2010 til I got the company truck. Best way to think these beasts are good on fuel is to own an H2 prior...worked for me! Hahaha

I have a 90 mile round trip commute... I'm usually doing 80-95 mph on the way to work. So that's the biggest reason I don't DD mine... Plus I'm afraid that someone will ding it at work or at the gym.

I see what kind of abuse my Acura takes as a DD. Can't do something like that to a vehicle I really like.

I bought it to drive it.
May have to buy a DD just to give the beast a break though at least during bad weather.
