This SUV shouldn't be in a class with the Ford Escape and smaller SUVs. It's remarkably spacious, it looks great, and there's so many options you can get. I got the base model, added great leather, dark tint, remote start, bluetooth, and rims. I liked it this way so I would only pay for what I wanted. First ever SUV and I'm loving it.
Favorite features are the information center, the stereo looks great, and the room still blows my mind. The ride is smooth, quiet, and powerful.
I have had some small noises but I feel it's just because it's a brand new car and have all been managed. I do however think there should be darker tint. When the "door-open" sign comes on, it should state which door it is, and lastly the doors should have more to them, kinda weak and boring on interior
