Review
Just returned to OH from SC after a week vacation. Was an excellent ride going through the WV & VA mountains, sailing along highways with fast traffic flow. The ride was excellent in all conditions & speeds. Averaged around 30 MPG. Traveling with a 14- & 6-year old + 2 adults makes interesting packing but got all in and had view lines out the back still. Underseat stowage in the middle seats is excellent. The flat floor in 2nd row allows a bag on the floor for laptops, MP3's, etc. easy. Even sustained a rear-end hit from another car on HWY with only minor corner fender damage - no injuries. With bags out of car, 3rd row seating was useful for grandparents who met us there.
Favorite Features
Handling, Utility (storage, 3rd row seats), sliding doors, sight lines.
Suggested Improvements
Winter handling... does not bite well when in low gear in snow/ice (torque issue?) when you start. Nearly got stuck in driveway with low rise and 2" of snow. Easy to "spin out" tires in all conditions if you stomp on gas from stop.
