With two young kids and a few more nieces/nephews we can carry/haul all we really want to with this car. So far the car has been a delight to own. We feel very safe riding/driving in it. I'd recommend (with one stipulation - see improvements) it to anyone. All-in-all though it really is a good solid vehicle.
The ride is great. It is very quiet & comfortable. The visibility is excellent. Sync is a really nice feature to have. I love all the hands-free features. Very spacious interior. Nice turning radius.
I'd love to say there were known. Unfortunately, the reason I scored it a 7 in performance is because I'd like to have a little more power in reserve and the winter (snow primarily) driving performance of the FWD system is very poor versus other FWD & RWD vehicles I have owned/leased.
