Daily commute is 70 miles and just have to say that this SUV is a pleasure to drive. Average 20-21 mpg (V-6 AWD) much better than my old SUV. Transmission did have to be replaced at 16,000 miles, work done quickly and competently and no problem since. Would definitely buy this vehicle again.
Interior comfort: great driver position (5'8" 200 lbs.), instrument layout simple and intuitive, very comfortable heated leather seats (Northeast US). Performance: very agile steering, good acceleration and braking.
Different tires (a little noisy). Indicator light to tell when 4 wheel drive is engaged.
