Too many mechanical failures. Required
immediate replacement of power steering
pump when brand new. Has needed two
rebuilt transmissions in less than
80,000 miles at over $2,000 apiece.
Neither transmission incident was
covered under any warranty.
In short, total cost of ownership of
this vehicle is way too high. It was
expensive to buy initially, and the
repair costs make it infeasible to keep.
Decent sound system. Luggage rack and
seating for seven is handy.
Poor reliability. Transmission failure
every two years is unacceptable. Seats
are very heavy and hard to move in and
out, particularly the rear bench seat.
