    Drives Like A Car, Smooth And Responsive. — Not an all-out 4X4 but had 4X4 capability so can't go everywhere, but has surprisingly good mud-slugging ability.

    Pros: Styling, comfort, responsiveness, smootness, refinement.

    Cons: Little heavy on petrol, but it's  4x4, so no surprises. Not enough oddments containers in the centre console.

    Stay Away! — i had this trash as a rental briefly: i got this "suv" stuck in half a foot of mud. interior is made of recycled plastic (dont know this 4 a fact, just feels that way) motor through the rev range sounds weak and dull, the brakes are not to rely on for quick stops handing is complete joke & i assure you this car tips easily

    Pros: foglamps

    Cons: chassis, motor, interior, design

    An All-around, Quick And Durable Suv, Perfect For College! — The exterior is very clean, with little excess crap to take away from it. The only downside is the tall plastic cladding on the bumpers and sides of the vehicle. The interior is also clean, with cloth seats. The dash is kind of tacky, made of plastic. The visibility is average SUV, with typical blind spots, though they are not too large. Performance wise, this is a quick SUV for it's class. Under 10 seconds to 60 and well spirited enough for passing. Handling is only average. This is due to the fact that it IS an SUV, but the Continental tires are noisy around corners, love to squeal, and are just not that great.

    Pros: 0-60, easy revving engine, and ability to activate fog lights with parking lights.

    Cons: Long gears, which leads to slower acceleration, handling, noisy tires, loss of power above 75 mph when put to the floor.

    Excellant, Serviceable, Everyday Vehicle. 200k Miles And Still Kicking. — I have no complaints with this car other than the layout of the transmission cooler. The hatchback is handy. Its not a large SUV, I've owned an Expedition, this one is just as good in its own way, certainly as tight, just not quite as heavy on the road and missing the third row seats. May be a little light in the back end if you are driving in in climate weather. This transmission has been pushed to the limit and is still tight. I cant imagine many better values out there for your money, short or long term.

    Primary Use: Commuting to work

    Pros: Just a good serviceable car, low maintenance, 4cylinder aut

    Cons: Design flaw in radiator location allows gravel to peck holes in transmission cooler. Consider installing a piece of expanded metal over that area and save yourself a headache if you drive through much gravel or construction.
