We researched all crossover vehicles in our price range of $30K. We've owned 6 Nissan's in the past and own the 2010 Armada. For a small car, it performs well, has plenty of power for the size vehicle and can get up to highway speed without a problem. We read all the reviews, and most were on-target and we didn't find any surprises. We are used to the CVT transmission and the "drone" is not an issue. We do notice more road noise, but it isn't annoying. The Bose system, Nav and cameras are excellent. We added the home link mirror and a roof wind deflector which work great. We are getting 24 mpg at this time without a complete break-in. It is a fun car to drive, but most of all, comfortable.
