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

says:
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.
