    Is this vehicle being produced in China ? if so I would be reluctant to buy anything from China as we have seen in the past, lead in toys, the sheet rock is moldy, lumber is treated with posionus material, pet food is killing our pets and on and on.
    The 2016 looks great but I am very skeptical of its origin.
