Seems that what this vehicle does well,
it does very well, and what it does
poorly it does very poorly.
I bought the vehicle with the extended
road trip in mind, and it eats up
highway miles very well. The car is
very confortable, the seats provide good
back support and the highway ride is
quite smooth. Also, the fuel economy is
as good as it gets for a mid-sized SUV.
However, I have replaced my most of my
front-end and cooling system components.
Also, the car is too narrow and hence,
too unstable, making city driving
difficult and wind treacherous.
Heavy vehicle with a big motor and soft
suspension makes it good for the
extended road trips.
I wish the car was 12" wider for better
stability in the wind and so I can carry
a sheet of plywood inside the vehicle.
