18 months and 26,000 miles after buying new, I have not had any problems. I average 19 mpg in suburban Atlanta based on HWY and City driving combined. I tow a 3500 lb trailer a few times a year with ease. I am probably harder than average on my vehicles, though I do not abuse them. I regret buying the base model and wish I would have spent more $ for more fun features.
V6 Power-train (engine and transmission combined) is very smooth and powerful enough. Tows my 3500 lb trailer quite well.
Decent gas mileage. Versatile configuration of rear seats when not in use. Roomy.
First front wheel drive vehicle Ive driven in a long time and wheels spin from a stop occasionally and torque when I stomp it while moving. Base model feels very stripped down but I like the interior. I do not like how the lights go on / off or vice versa (interior / exterior) once vehicle is stopped.
