Pros: this is an awesome SUV with a manual transmission making it fun to drive - zippy! It's very hard to find american SUVs that are at least 6 cylinder with a stick shift & this one has a 6 speed! Love that! Great size for women who think most SUVs are too big and hard to handle. It's slightly larger than a Toyota RAV4, but well appointed with panoramic sun roof & nice detailing throughout.
Fun to drive - zippy! Nice styling throughout. All-wheel-drive manual transmission. Does very well in the snow.
Cons: no heated leather seats - very cold in the winter! Side running boards are a menace in the winter because they're hard to keep clean! Every time I get in and out, my pants get dirty! The driver-side cup holder is also in an awkward place located on the right side next to the stick shift.
