Great Family Car. Lots Of Space For Trips. — I have kids in lots of sports- this car was great for getting kids here and there and loading lots of gear in the back. For family trips, luggage and the dog could fit comfortably in the back. We could use the roof rack for extra storage.

Perfect Family Car — Love it!!! The V6 3.2 liter engine is smooth and drives nicely. Great safety features. The two built in booster seats are perfect. No car seats needed for kids (about 5 years old and above). Driving in snowy condition is no problem with the AWD.
