Vehicle is driven daily commute and
hauls my bass boat. Delievered quality
was good. Minimal maintenance has been
needed. Except in snow, >9
in., vehicle goes with
minimal fuss. It tries its best to
keep you from doing stupid things.
Driving position is generally good
and seats supportive. However on
long drives >6 hrs. could use more
length. More than adequate power to tow
my 21' bassboat (~4200 Lbs. Combat
Loaded). Heater/AC is acceptable but
noisy at high fan speeds. Cheap
interior plastics are a put down. Off
Road activity has been acceptable but
not rubicon capable. The lack of a full
size spare tire is not good.
Fuel economy. In daily commuting year
around it averages right at 21 mpg.
Towing the boat it is close to 14 mpg.
The cruise control is outstanding.
Braking is superb.
Add a full set of instruments and a
full size spare Tire. Move the trailer
connector to a more accessible
position; Make the seats more Recaro
(SP) like. Fix the rear seat(s) folding
mechanism. Make the rear mirrors bigger
and or extendable. Improve the standard
radio & speakers.
