This vehicle has been truly a treat. Truly a great performer off road, and very decent on road. If you're never going to go off road I would not recommend, it rides a little rough than some would like, but if you are looking for a SUV that can actually climb rocky jeep trails you can't go wrong. The cargo area is NOT carpeted which makes very easy to clean.
Tons of ground clearance, power. Great handling. Decent mileage for what it is (22 combined). Quiet ride. Comfortable. Handles surprisingly well.
Rear entry is tight due to narrow rear doors, trade-off of the short wheel base. Disappointing stock stereo.
