Bad hesitation in second gear at low speed. Everything else was what I wanted and worked correctly.

Looks Nice, Very Comfortable To Drive And Is Great For Business. — All in all, I really enjoyed this van but now that I'm not in business anymore, it's too much car. That is saying a lot because I drove a Lexus RX350 before this van...and I loved that SUV too. The van always gets stares. People love it! Who knew?

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Used it for our small party rentals company. I was able to fit a 20'x10' tent, 14 tables, 50 chairs, a ladder, 6 tent weights, a dolly...and still had space. Amazing!  Smooth drive and turn radius is great. Nice big windshield and windows. The back up camera and sensors came in handy when the cargo area is fully loaded. The auxiliary jack enabled me to listen to my GPS while driving.

Cons: No passing power with this 4 cylinder engine. The stock radio speakers are not made for the enjoyment of music.
