This was our first SUV and it was OK, but neither my wife nor I were overly
impressed. We pull a 2500 lb. camper, which it excelled at, but there were a
number of things we weren't pleased with. The power steering unit went out,
the power side view mirrors died, the CD/Stereo went out, and now the air
conditioning is going out. (We had the air refilled once already.) I didn't care
for the ride at all, but perhaps that was due to my inexperience with SUV's. I
also felt a bit cramped, coming from a minivan.
Power. It handled the towing without a problem. Engine ran well.
