I traded in my 2005 4Runner for this car two weeks ago and I am so disappointed. I thought I was buying a luxury SUV, but that was not the case. There is way more road noise than I expected. I don't know if this is due to the tires or a lack of cabin insulation. The ride is average, definitely not luxurious, and do not plan on seating more than four adults comfortably. Also, the radio is terrible for a car in this price range. It crackles already at medium volume. I miss my 4Runner!
The power lift gate is a great feature and the automatic windshield wipers are amazing.
This car needs more cabin insulation for a quieter ride. If you don't spend the money on the premium sound system, prepare to be disappointed.
