After 18 months, still a good car.

Have had mine for 18 months now, 17,000 miles. Still love the ride, handling and versatility. Getting about 22 mpg on regular fuel with about a 60%/40% city/hwy mix. Love the extra row of seats... actually fit 7 adults without a problem this summer. The nav system is OK but some of the newer portable systems are better. I have towed my boat (towing pkg) a few times without any problems. Great in winter weather as far as driving, but this winter I have started to get a belt squeaking during cold mornings (below 35F). Overall still very impressed with this large SUV that drives like a much smaller vehicle.
Heated seats, sporty feel of interior and handling.
Rear doors are too large. Allow destination input in nav system while driving (sometimes there are passengers that can do this for you). Allow 2nd row to slide further back to allow more leg room when 3rd row not in use.
