Pros

I love the space and the well thought out design of the interior and cargo space of this SUV. Everything is user friendly with the latest technology but easy to setup without a degree in computers. Lots of smart storage spaces and controls. It handles like a dream and corners very well. The seats adjust to about every size person and have good memory  for drivers 1 and 2. Center console is high enough to use as a comfortable armrest, something I have trouble with being a taller driver. It also moves out of the way to get to stuff underneath and you can drive with it in either position, a very nice feature. All the seats in the back fold completely flat and the car is tall enough not to lose significant cargo space if you do this. We like to travel with an air mattress in the back and it is not only big enough for this, but the luggage fits on one side no problem with no shifting on the hwy.

Cons

Would liked to have seen more attention to the looks of the outside. Even a pint stripe would help just a little as its just a little blah. Not quite as stylish as its twin the Buick Enclave. The cross bars for the cargo rack and towing package should be standard.

Great Suv, You Won't Know Its A Cross Over — Overall this car will be great for those that don't want to downsize to the smaller SUV's and really prefer the look and feel of the SUV to the crossover. Although categorized as a crossover, it has the rugged look of the SUV and the cargo room. The ride is smooth and so is the handling. The big advantage is not having to have running boards to get in and out. Although some think they are stylish and you can add them if you want, For people like me with back problems, I am always twisting or trying to step over them. So I get the headroom I want without the running board difficulty. The controls are the latest technology and are logically placed with blu tooth, On STar and Satellite Radio, lots of power options for your seat, of course windows, cruise, outdoor temp and a compass, 2 trips and digital readouts. Its just a great setup without having to go to higher options and best of all, its American...Bonus!

Great Choice As Family Suv. — It's just an all around great SUV for a family especially if you travel, go camping, etc. Very spacious inside! It is also loaded with good options, and after the fact packages. Love the backup camera. Couldn't live without it!

Overall Great Value — Large enough to haul a ton of people and gear but small enough to manuver for everyday use. Sporty suspension and handeling but a little softer suspension for city roads would be nice, but I have driven many similar cars and they all seem to focus on handling first.

Pros

I love the room on the inside.  I can easily fit 8 people in it, all with seat belts.  This is great with children and their friends!

Cons

It won't pull my boat without using a lot of gas.

Great Family Car — When I bought the car, it was perfect for my family. It drives smooth and comfortable for the front and back seat passengers. It has plenty of room for the kids and luggage for vacations. It is easy to keep clean.
