I've only had it 2 months and so far there's been no major problems. The average mpg up to 27.8 which is around what I expected. Overall I would recommend it for someone who wants an environmentally kinder SUV.
The fact that when you're sitting in traffic or at a red light that seems to last forever you're not wasting gas or pumping out pollutants. The display that tells you things like average mpg and miles left till empty.
The main things I'd change about it are an extra row of seats would be nice. The other thing is the styling, it's very brick-like, I prefer the sleeker looks of the crossovers, although you do sacrifice some space for that.
