Bought the vehicle for the four wheel
drive feature to get into cottage in
poor weather. For this it is great. I
even pulled out a tree stump with it!
However, getting to the cottage on the
highway is another matter. I have never
felt safe in the thing, especially in
windy conditions and on wet or snowy
roads. I have also had a tick in the
engine since day one- normal according
to the dealer- and a belt pulley that
is very noisy , even after having it
replaced once. I'm happy that my three
year lease term is up.
4 wheel drive on cottage roads and
around town in winter
more power, more stability on highway.
Dealer honesty about the tick in engine-
you know its a common problem.
