I bought this car new and it has had its problems. I like the ride and the power is good although I agree that the engine runs too fast at higher speeds. This car could use a better gearing spread or a sixth gear. Here's the list of the car's problems: bad electrical harness, replaced under warranty; leaking sunroofs replaced under warranty 2 times, broken front swaybar, not under warranty; rear sunroof shade won't move in its track, not under warranty, and I have just started to notice a steering shimmy that does not bode well.
It's a comfortable car that handles well. The cargo space is great. I love the AWD.
The reliability must be improved; this car has had too many things go wrong in it's first five years. I would ideally like to keep this car for 7-10 years but I don't know if it will make it that long.
