What a value! I considered the Volvo
XC, Audi A4 and VW Passat and all were
10 grand more. Obviously for this
price you sacrifice a little quality
but not much. After having my kidneys
rattled on a daily basis in a
Landcruiser I couldn't be more
content. The car has some pep and
handles reasonably well. It is
definitely front dominant.
An absolutely loaded car for under
$30K. Every bell and whistle. Love
the On Star and weather band. Gas
mileage is superb-getting about 29 hwy.
The auto trans constantly shifts in
and out of 4th on backroads so I leave
it in third. Really annoying. The
armrest and center console seem to be
made to fit an extraterrestrial. The
Climate Control system is bizzaro-
you'll either bake or freeze. Best
using it on manual.
