On our first trip north, I had two dogs, a kid, a 10 horse outboard motor, a plug in cooler and 260 miles to drive to our lake. 24 mpg on two lanes with hills. Great utility vehicle and have gotten 28 mpg on the two lanes. 24 on the freeway. We live in MN and it does a great job in the snow also. I may want a more aggressive snow tread though for the back roads.
Interior space, stereo, comfort. Rides surprisingly nice. Power locks on the passenger side would be nice.
Put a power sunroof in up front and skip the moon roof. I tinted ours very darkly at an autoglass shop to keep the sun off my daughter and the dogs.
