Quiet but Average SUV

ReviewNeeds more refinement to compete in class. Incentives make this vehicle worth what you finally pay for it. Noise levels are low, except for wind noise at speeds greater than 60 mph. Fit and finish are below standards. Gaps where bumper plastic meets fender is very visible. Base six cylinder engine is great - smooth, refined, and plenty of power. Gas mileage is less than advertised. Resonant noises, only at certain speeds, create a booming rumble that is very annoying. Already have a few rattles. Overall, a good touring vehicle that does not offend. Just don't drive it too hard, and don't expect more than it costs.
Best FeaturesInterior is tastefully done. Engine is smooth, quiet, and powerful. Memory settings for seats, radio, and hvac are convenient for multiple drivers.
Worst FeaturesNeed to eliminate resonance from exhaust/drivetrain that creates booming noise at certain speeds in vehicle. Base radio lacks fidelity by a wide margin - drowns you in distorted bass with bass set to low.
