This car is not a sports car or fun around town grocery getter. This car is tough and "all business". I've yet to get it stuck and believe me I've tried. Acceleration on the road from a dead stop is my only complaint. It's perfect for the outdoor adventure guy and light work around the house. I've halled all material to build my fence in the back, all my bikes for triathlon and mountain biking, and it carries all the camping gear you need for a month! Go for it.
