Bought this car when it was new. It's worst feature is the engine is underpowered and it automatically locks into a lower gear when uphill. This can kick in on the highway at 65 mph and the engine just starts revving. With that said, this has been a great car for my family. It never got stuck in the snow and ice. It has great visibility from the windows. It has been very reliable and has never let me down. It gets about 19 mph city driving and about 27 mph highway. It has long suspension that really smooths out the road bumps. I would recommend it.
AWD, ABS, Good visibility, Reliable, Large cargo area with seats down.
More power and get rid of that feature in the transmission that drops to a lower gear on an incline.
