The 2006 is everything I thought it would be and more. Looked at all in its class and no other compares. Got the 5spd manual to get the extra horses from the engine and I'm glad I did. Ride, handling and acceleration are very good. Recommend this vehicle to anyone! Like it better than the 2007.
Ride, roomy, no blind spots, breaking is great.
1st gear is low and this great vehicle needs a 6th gear for highway use. Glove box (too small) and picnic table are a joke. Rear tire makes the vehicle feel longer. Kind of stiff in steering (expected from a mid size SUV) Wife misses the mirror on passenger side. Shifting could be a little smoother.
