Great Family Car — This is a great family car with AWD capability. It handles well in the snow or on dry pavement. The engine is designed with color-coded items for people to self-maintain the car. The towing capacity is pretty nice for the size of car too.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great AWD capability. Engine is laid out for self-maintenance. The Bluetooth streaming feature is great.

Cons: Nothing.
