Solid At This Point.. Couldnt Picture Being On Road For Over 8 Years — So far so good 3 years in. No major problems. Loud road noise but thats what a system is for.

Pros: Gas/Size, Smooth Ride

Cons: Road noise, brakes

Poor Fuel Mileage, Left Rear Wheel Bearing Went Out At 31000 Mile, Falling Apart — We just had to have one, the fuel mileage on the speck sheet and in the real world did not jive, comfotable ride, heard a noise coming from the left rear, thought it was a bad tire, put new tires on ( Michelin Energy is your best buy) did not fix the howel, took it in and they found a bad wheel bearing at 31000, covered under warranty, so we sold it and lost are a@@ on the crossover, does not have a good resale value!

Owner for 1 years, 6 months

Miles Driven per Year:25,000

Pros: looks good, rides good

Cons: junk

Awesome Family Car — I love everything about this car, except the repair bill, but that I think is partially fault to the dealership not catching these things prior to my purchase. It handles great in the snow, Gas mileage is awesome for it being an SUV and having the ability to stuff whatever I can into it is a huge plus.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: I Love this car with all my heart, it does great in the snow and on nasty roads, seats comfortably and the back is great for loading things and the seats fold down (including the passenger seat) to make more room for hauling things if needed.

Cons: THE TRANSFER CASE!  Oh my god is that thing expensive to replace.

Good And Reliable — Overall a descent car with a good amount of cargo space for a family or hauling a few things from the store. The front seat folds down completely allowing for larger items to be transported. The heated seats are awesome and the gas mileage descent Overall the car handles well

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: heated seats and sun/moon roof

Cons: the starter acts up every once in a while

For size engine, expected highway mpg to be better than 25 avg. Front seats felt like upholstered concrete. Cheap plastic on dash was marked up, scratched and worn within 25,000 miles. Rear seats and cargo area very roomy. Quiet ride. Handled well. Dash gauges and controls well positioned.
