"Great 4 and a half years, low miles but driven in all conditions and under various loads. Family duty car. Quick and nimble for an CUV, powerful, comfortable and quiet. Reliable, nothing but oil changes every six months, some for free with dealer coupons. Excellent warranty, but fortunately not needed. Exterior good looks, and on long trip (500 miles) with 7 occupants avg mpg of 25.6 at avg speed of 74 mph, on regular. On a twisty mountain road those magnesium paddle shifters came in very handy, and downshifts/upshifts are very quick for a smooth 6 speed auto tranny. Original tires were Goodyears low profile, but didn;t last long - replaced with Pirrelis (sp?) and car handles even better. Closest CUV, in this price range, to sport sedan. I wish the dash had higher touch quality but there are no squeeks or rattles yet. True utility car at a friendly price (if you don't go for leather and navi). Love the tail gate with 400lbs capacity and easy loading as well as as two hidden jump seats for kids. Excellent room for back passengers, with sliding and reclining back seats. Tons of standard features -bluetooth, paddle shiters, 6 cd changer DSC, ABS, many airbags, aluminum roof with roof racks. Great vehicle."
