We Recently bought this car after much research and tons of test drives. We test drove pretty much every single SUV out in the market today and settled down on this one. We got a huge discount and rebate on the 2011 model. This crew has more than what you ask for, for the price that we paid. For 31,000 it has a lot of stuff. The best part is that it is AWD, looks beautiful inside out. The ride is amazing. It is very quite on the road, especially on the Highway, once you get to the fifth gear, the engine becomes very quite that you can barely hear it. In one week we did 400 miles with 20 mpg combined, fabulous.
20 MPG combined is pretty good and it is going to get better after the car breaks in. Blue Tooth Audio streaming is cool, first time use. 30 G HD for music is good. Sound system. Ride, handling, Turning radius is immaculate for a car this size. Rearview Camera and sensors. Luggage space after the 3rd row. Remote start.
Tranny takes a little time to downshift, but if you pump 89 octane or 91 or may be 93, the car becomes real quick off the feet.
