This car is a very good value for the money. The interior is nicely finished and very comfortable to be in. The car drives very well and is very good in the snow. The realtime 4WD is seamless and allows for very good milage for the size and weight of the vehicle.
Got my 2010 Crosstour on December of 2009......first one on the lot.
As others commented, the "quirkyness" was a selling point, but, the interior details, space, comfort, that it provided as standard equipment all options that other makers considered "extras" (i.e. built in Nav system, seat heaters, premium stereo, 4WD, sync with garage remotes, etc., etc........) and much more.
The ride remains impeccable making it a great touring sedan.......though not being one........:)
Plus, on a good day, managed to squeeze 34mpg on the highway.
Still getting comments and looks from other drivers on the road who wonder "what is that?"
Overall, still thrilled and looking forward to many years with my Crosstour.
