ReviewOverall very sturdy and comfortable, with a smooth ride, but significant mechanical issues: Engine head blew at 34,000 miles. Partial transmission failuire at 47k. Speed sensor failure at 54k. Tensioner pulley locked up, and water pump failed (bearing). High-speed side of radiator fan unit locked-up, resulting in overheat condition, resulting in oil boiling and sludging the engine. Electronic window motor locked-up. Temperature readout of trip computer stopped functioning. All of this and more just four years after buying it off of the showroom floor. Repairs after the limited warranty expired have been costly.
Best FeaturesSmooth ride--rides like a car. Nice handling--again, like a car. Very comfortable interior--supple, comfortable, almost luxurious. Very well-appointed interior. Nice exterior look--very appealing.
Worst FeaturesImprove the 7/70 "limited" warranty. ALL mechanical issues need to be covered, including malfunctioning interior components. 5-year bumper-to- bumper and 7/70 FULL powertrain should be standard.
