I am a first time SUV owner. I test drove the Toyota Rav4, Ford Escape and Honda CVR. This was the most car for the money. Lots of safety features and the driver's information center is very useful. Have had lots of compliments on the style of this vehicle. I would recommend it without hesitation.
OnStar and remote start. Lots of cargo room. Quiet ride.
Steering feedback is not great. Gas mileage could be better. Interior not as refined as some but is far from bad.
