I bought this vehicle because of the large amount of storage and cubbies, and smooth test drive. I'm happy to say that's what the purchased vehicle delivers. Unfortunately, it falls short in nearly every other area.
Comfortable front and rear seats. Ingenious sliding center console. Huge hidden trunk under cargo bed--fantabulous solution to age-old problem! Fold up rear seat provides even more cargo space. Invisible gearbox allows for flat floor cabin and even more space.
HVAC controls are a joke--as if someone intentionally designed the most cumbersome and hard to find buttons possible. Bluetooth system is unsatisfactory. No streaming music. Limited touchscreen options for phone. Pathetic gas mileage. Backup camera doesn't offer proximity warnings and has poor picture. "4WD" seems to be all marketing. At best, it's part-time AWD and the system is highly restricted and tricky to engage. Basically a useless button on instrument console.
