Had my SE for about a month now. My likes definitely outweigh my dislikes. Very powerful engine, getting good fuel economy 18 - 20 overall, but driving it easy in the break in period. Seats seem very comfortable, good support, wish they were heated. RF Sound system is awesome for stock. Surprisingly quiet even on rough pavement, but it does have a firm, choppy ride. It's not a car though, so I can live with that. Great no-nonsense SUV that will handle my towing chores, and get 5 skiers or backpackers where they need to go with all their stuff. Got one drive in the snow, and had no trouble blasting through a foot and a half of light powder.
Great visibility, smooth transmission, power aplenty.
Rear passengers only get 2 cupholders, no storage in doors, and only one seatback pocket, at least the window goes most of the way down. External temp gauge a big oversight and Heated seats in SE would be welcome. Standard rubber cargo mat would be nice, we bought a Weathertech (avoid Husky)
