Lots of HP for the gross weight giving the vehicle a lot of pull. Has a good design interior with hooks and tie downs making it very versatile. Love the fold down front passenger seat, the second row has lots of leg room and head room (I am 6'2"). Very easy to remove the spare, has lots of room between the driver and passenger. Quality built molding, plastics and seat cloth will last. VDC allows it to perform and handle like it has a much lower center of gravity through twists and turns.
Very fun to drive overall and the S-O-T-F 4-Wheel allows you go anywhere. Nice looking exterior, but easily mistaken for a Pathfinder.
Stereo has a good sound (base system, not the Rockford Fosgate), but the actual player has a very cheap feel to it with loud clicks.
