ReviewHave the same minor complaints as others re: poor interior materials, poor stereo, no tinting on windows (base model) and oddly, low-positioned passenger seat. Major concern is with performance of the PZEV engine. When accelerating in order to pass on the freeway, will sometimes 'get stuck' and rev wildly for a few seconds. As though it's in idle and I'm revving the engine. Corrects itself when I back off of the accelerator. Am not in control of the speed of the vehicle when this happens. Very disconcerting and dangerous. Will be taking in to dealer, but am not hopeful due to regulations of PZEV and the ECM. May cut my losses soon and sell. Very disappointed with engine performance.
Best FeaturesSure-footedness of AWD, tight steering. Lots of interior room
Worst FeaturesTint the windows on base model! Put in a better stereo. Allow height adjustment of passenger seat. Do something about the Pzev engine, or don't bother with it!
