Reviewed many similar cars but I knew this was the one. Edmunds gave a favorable review. Stylish, powerful engine, comfortable, safety, and best of all the kids aren't shy to ride in it. The handling is great! Seats are comfortable and the kids love the dashboard's lights. Haven't had a chance to do the MPG thing but I'm sure it'll be better than my F-150!
Stylish inside and out. Handling is great! Power when you need it.
Improve in buffering the road noise. Cruising the freeway can be loud. Other than that I have minor things: Driver side hand gripe to pull yourself out. The other doors have it. Automatic door lock after car starts.
