I bought this car, last year before the bad North east winter. I was really pleased with its snow weather handling, it left stuck 4runners, and trailbazers behind. The car is excellent with overall driving, however issues I have are; very bad mileage approx. 16 mpg, for city, small fuel tank, dated design, dated nav system, unrealistic third row, the radio steering controls are not practical, no bluetooth, no ipod controls. I am really thinking of trading it in for the X5 diesel, it gives 26 mpg.
AWD feature, driving confidence. back up camera.
modern electronics, bluetooth, ipod controls, modern maps and resolution screen. Bigger tank, maybe 20 gal. better mileage, consider a diesel option.
