Writing this review after about 800 miles, and there are some awesome things about this car. One of my favorite things is the turbo engine. Offers PLENTY of passing power, merging onto highway, accelerating out of toll booths, etc. Some people mention they'd like to see a 5th gear, but I have had no problems at all. Much better engine than the CRV (sluggish and underpowered) and comparable in power to the 6cyl RAV4. Plenty of space inside and cabin makes sense as laid out. Panoramic moon roof is giant. Great feature. Handles wonderfully, and better than other, even higher-end SUVs I've driven. I didn't get the nav, so my stereo/accouterments are basic at best. No iPod interface is lame.
Great engine acceleration, handling, moon roof, very spacious without being too big. Nice looking vehicle.
iPod interface instead of outdated 6CD changer would be nice. Stereo system is fair at best. Cargo nets/cover should come with the car.
