I love how it handles and it is a blast to drive. It is a pleasure to drive on long road trips. The GPS, XM and Bluetooth work well, especially for handsfree phone calls. It has plenty of power and the AWD makes corners fun. However, it has a firm to rough ride and lots of engine noise especially at low speeds. The tone of the engine sound reminds me of a very low-end econo car, not something that costs in the high $30's. The leather used on the seats seems sort of low quality, along with the carpet. The seats are extremely comfortable though. Overall, I do think it is a very good little SUV and will probably be very reliable for many year. It just has a couple of drawbacks.
