I've owned this car for a few months now, and have really put it to the test. I have horses - and have never gotton stuck in the mud. Taken it skiing 3 times now, and it never slips - even on 7% grades on solid snow pack. Reliable, practical (good gas mileage) but needs more power. Does okay on mountain passes as long as it's not too heavily loaded.
All wheel drive seems to work well, I like the overall design. Easy to drive, reliable.
My car has a huge amount of road noise. Over 80 mph, the right side begins to make a very noticeable rattle. Some of the seals are not holding up. Highway mileage drops because RPMs are high, at 80 mph you're wrapped up to 4,000 rpm in 5th gear.
