I have owned a few SUVs, but this has to be the best experience ever. The ride is solid and smooth, the suspension is sporty without being too hard. I average about 19MPG (incl. city driving) primarily because i pay attention to the "eco" mode on the dashboard which has affected my driving behavior (slower acceleration, etc). It is fast and has quick acceleration. Occasionally in taking sharp turns at higher speeds, there is a sense of top- heaviness but no concern for roll- over.
Driving is fun - Handling is great for an SUV. Navigation/Enform is neat/cool.
The interior is lush and beautiful, but would have preferred not as much plastic on the 2nd row doors. The 3rd row is a joke and should only be used to punish in-laws or for a few extra (short) kids for short distances - instead i just put them down and have a larger trunk area.
