Bought this car used for my wife in
July 2003 w/ 11k miles. We've put 13k
miles on the car in 9 months and have
nothing but good things to say about
AWD and Cold Weather Package was a God
send during a rough winter in NJ. AWD
is fantastic in the snow - no
indication of the car slipping in
acceleration in deep snow. Great for
my wife who isn't real comfortable
driving in inclement weather. No
complaints from her now!
A great mix of car comform and SUV
characteristics with a youthful look
AWD, Cold Weather package (heated
seats, mirrors and bottom of
windshield) ride comfort and quality
better acceleration and gas mileage.
Averaging about 24 mpg with mostly
highway driving. Some dash buttons
(cruise on/off, fog lights) feel cheap
and inconsistent with the rest of the
vehicle integrity. Some excessive wind
noise at highway speeeds.
