SUV has very nice features and more than enough power. We bought it on a Saturday, drove it during that weekend and noticed the hard downshifting when letting off the gas pedal at approx 40 MPH. Took it back to dealer Monday and service person rode with us. He said that there was a sensor that needed to be replaced. This did not fix our problems. The service dept said there is no fix at this time. They still do not have a solution.
Build a car with a decent transmission or fix it before it goes into the market place. Air bags are not standard on the SE model so for safety we had to move up into a whole different price range, the LE.
