Re: No limited slip in 2006?
My '05 has traction control, automatic four wheel drive and limited
slip. I have often wondered how it could sort out what to do with all
these options. Seems to me limited slip is no longer needed. A lot
of messages in this group talk about whine problems with that rear
axle so that may have something to do with a decision to drop it.
