"Overall, this has been a very reliable vehicle that has nice looks, comfort and features...for the year. It is packed with the same engine-3.5-used in the infinity...and it has way more power than one would need under normal driving, which I like immensely. Very roomy interior and ok (not great) visibility as headrests in rear impede view from undersized hatch window (what WERE they thinking?. On the down side, the engineering of some of the components is annoying to say the least, I mean, who ever heard of trailing arm (front and rear) bushings wearing out to the extent that the condition has become synonymous with the vehicle on repair forums, and not a very flattering term-death roll-which results in unacceptable swaying of the body at speeds >55mph w/ potential for rollover. Anyone in back seat has already threatened physical violence unless you slow or let them out, in the time it takes to escalate to the level of a threat to those in the front. I guess it's more pronounced in the rear. Yep, No alignment shop could find the problem (my victory, w/ help from above). CD (Clarion) changer is wont to take a dive on these, alarm fob, clock, A/C, and engine control aka "CHECK ENGINE LIGHT", related components have contributed to more afternoons under the hood than I had expected-MAF sensor, recently bank 1 o2 sensor #2 replaced (I guess that's really all the ECM issues in six years of ownership, hard on front brakes, and tires (Michelins (is there any other?)at Costco run around $700 OTD. Would I buy another?????????Depends on the deal. I might try Toyota for better engineering, as the above mentioned problems were challenging even for the dealer to diagnose, and I ultimately troubleshot and repaired (former mech)."
