I am deeply disappointed in the design of the Alltrack front end. For a car that is meant to be used in a variety of situations, including off-road, it is unacceptably delicate.

In maneuvering, or parking, not sure which, we brushed against a curb. In doing so, the chrome trim disconnected from the plastic under panel. The under panel then scooped air as we drove, and wore away the clips that held it to the chrome panel. Eventually, despite trying to reattach the two, the chrome panel came off the car completely.

Now the black underpanel is attached to the lower black grill with a zip tie to keep it in place. Not very rugged.
