Hi and welcome, you are in the wrong place to get bad comments
, only joking I am currently driving my third Yeti and find it a good all round vehicle it is a 110 4x4 it gets me into a muddy car park for my clay pigeon shooting, gets the boss around in normal every day driving and has the road holding abilities of s--- to a blanket, have done a 5hr trip from yorkshire to home with only a short break and felt that I could have driven further with no problem.

The 4x4 is only used when it is needed as most of the time it will put 95% of the drive to the front and 5% to the rear (a lot less tyre wear) but when it needs more drive on the rear it will put it there without you knowing, and it will break any wheel that is slipping to make the drive go to the gripping wheel, the only thing to remember is when you get wheel slip in a off road situation is not to back off the throttle.

The main thing is to just drive and enjoy you new to you Yeti, any bad bits can be read about on here but there are not many
, post up a few photos of your new toy, all the best for tomorrow enjoy your day.

I Think you will be pleased with your choice, I guess it is the old style body, which must be destined to become a classic.

I find the 4x4 just makes all rough on-road conditions effortless. I repeatedly find it has all the versatility of a large vehicle and the parkability of small vehicle. Careful not to clip the kerbs, you will find none of that under-steer in 99% of 2 wheel drive cars.

Welcome Arn. I am sure you'll join us in enjoying what the Yeti
offers and you'll be driving with a grin on your face.

As others have said you won't find too many bad comments on this forum, we leave that to others. Some people find the seats on some face-lift models to be uncomfortable, and reviews you have probably read comment about the ride being "jiggly" on poor surfaces. It's better with 16 inch wheels than the standard 17 inch. On the other hand it has beenCar of the Year and still wins plaudits when compared to other small SUVs and Jeremy Clarkson sang its praises!

Enjoy the day tomorrow.

Welcome Arn,Looking at this forumthere arevery few bad comments.

I been looking at Yeti's for around 4 years, for me it was down to bottom line figures.
Finally got mine 2 weeks ago. It's a 4x4 DSG, is yours manual or auto?

What I have found/noticed is the 2ltr has afair bit of poke, put's a right smile on my face pulling away.
When you drive on normal roads you never notice if it's 2 or 4 wheel drive.

Happy driving with your new car.

Welcome, Arn ... and don't let it be too long before we have some pics of your 'steed' and, in time, some comments about it.

Hi Arn, a big welcome to the yeti worldwide family, from a down under member. I sure do hope you enjoy your new ride and find it difficult to get the grin off of your face, just like so many other Yeti owners. Tick Tock is a typical example of a happy Yeti owner and driver.
