I agree with the Swiss Army knife comment--this car offers comfort, class, off-road and bad-road handling, lots of room,
bells and whistles (I have winter package with heated front seats and also satellite radio) and for a car of its utility, superb gas mileage.
At first I was getting an average of 23-25 mixed used mpg, but on a recent 2000 mile road trip, loaded with 5 passengers and cargo, I averaged 30 mpg at 70-75 mph.
I had read in chat rooms people trash the contipro tires, but at the end of the trip we got caught in some sketchy snow conditions, and the car pulled through like a champ.
Heated seats, satellite radio, adjustable roof rack (though I haven't used that feature, yet.)
