Expensive repair, lousy mpg

ReviewTry 17-19 mpg in mixed driving even on non-ethanol gas which is only 6 months a year around here. I get 25 mpg on an open highway on cruise control on good gas. My experience has been tire blowout at 25K miles, an expensive fuel injector around 30k miles, the cargo area interior cover before 30k miles, the serpentine belt at 40k miles, and the very expensive leaking valve gasket at 50k miles. Altogether, I have experienced higher than usual repair incidence of very expensive repairs, and long before they are due for normal maintenance. There were two recall notices, also.
Best FeaturesThe safety features. The power to easily pass others at highway speeds. The sound system. The AWD control.
Worst FeaturesLarger cup holders. Sturdier cup holder for back seat.
