Had to get rid of a gas eating '93 Explorer and needed fuel efficiency, and something with a longer roof line for carrying a 9'6" surfboard. Liked the solid feel, styling and ride, 5 star crash ratings plus a nice list of standard features at a very good price. Very peppy for a 2.2L Auto, with smooth shifting that averages about 26MPG in stop and go commuter traffic. Close to 1K miles and my wife and I are very happy(she wanted one 1st). Will hopefully add a 2nd in a year or so. It was great to go out and look at cars and have a US made vehicle meet our needs and come out on top! So far so good!
Body style, information center, solid feel and drive. Intelligent use of cargo space, remote start and standard power equipment.
Reposition cup holders and an optional roof rack for all models.
