is the NLA of parts really starting to be an issue with the 100 series? Luckily i haven't had to replace much since getting mine last year, but that worries me. My 22 year old 100 feels better than most modern cars to me
Sure, total external dimensions it's "only and inch or two" but it's just beefier in general. Was just looking at some 200s parked next to my LX yesterday and noticed for instance the hood is a good 3 inches taller and the beltline as well. The front of the headlights and grill come almost out as far as the bumper where on the 100 the bumper is much further out.Get a 200 is you can afford it. Otherwise 100 is just fine
Their outside dimensions are nearly identical:
100 193″ L x 76″ W x 73″ H
200 195″ L x 78″ W x 74″ H
KDSS is totally unnecessary, IMO. Yeah I'd take a 5.7 if it was in my 100 from the factory but I'm loaded up with a heavy truck and never care for more power. Better gas mileage on the other hand... But the 5.7 / 200 wouldn't get me that.C'mon that 5.7l gas guzzler is not too bad. Also KDDS is not bad either. A little complicated but I think it works as keeping the suv planted when necessary and not when necessary.
