I have driven 70K miles in 18 months in
West Michigan, mostly on the freeway.
The car is exceptional in the snow
especially with winter tires, it is
quiet and comfortable on the freeway
and grip is excellent. The tailgate is
43" wide and you can carry a 48" wide
board on an angle. It also pulls
medium size trailers effortlessly. My
car has had only one problem, which was
a blown fan motor caused by a faulty
surge protector. Dealer service has
been very good. My complaints are that
the interior is pretty boring, the car
is really slow, and I average only
In the winter I ran Eagle Ultra Grip
Ice snow tires on the Wagon. Driving
5/10ths in winter was easily more fun
than a sports car in the summer.
165 horsepower in a 3700lb car is
clearly too little. The car needs more
power and another gear in the
automatic. The interior needs some
updating as well.
