Overall:

Great For Taking A Lot Of Things Or A Lot Of People Pretty Much Anywhere — Gas mileage is great for a SUV and when sitting in it you feel on top of everything. There's a lot of nice luxury features for it but it's also useful when going through tough terrain. The V6 engine can kick in when you really need it, though a V8 would be nicer.

Pros: Gas mileage, handling, cargo space, people space

Cons: Not the quickest off the starting line

Very Good Family Suv With Room For 8 — The overall size and reliability of this vehicle is nice and it has plenty of power to take the family to the beach or lake while towing a boat or golfcart. Very reliable and I have my 16 year old daughter driving it because it is so safe.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: plenty of room and power to pull our 21 foot boat easily

Cons: can be a bit of a pig with gas when towing but otherwise it is okay considering it's size

Perfect Family Car...on Kind Of A Budget. — what a car, for a v6 that vtec really hauls ass! its Japanese and its a truck and its all quality made! its an amazing looking truck when its waxed and clean its actually pretty sharp. gas is so so but its hard to prosper when the car is so peppy! i average 17.5-18mpg. this cars technology complicated though, between splittng the radio with the rear and stuff and the RES. but does that stereo pump with that subwoofer! it is overall really just terrific and i do not regret buying it! UPDATE: everything is quie good still but latley ive been noticing how sensitive the tire pressure detector is.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: engine, comfort, RES, and awesome features.

Cons: its complicated center stack with radio and a/c/heater
