I enjoy driving my XL-7 around town but do not like taking it on long trips due to the rough ride. The ride is very bumpy and uncomfortable. I read that the '07 model will have a smoother ride. If that's the case I wouldn't hesitate to consider purchasing one. The price and warranty are good. Its reliability is good. I have not had any problems.
The interior is nice with the wood grain. I have the cosmic blue color which gets a lot of attention.
Improve the choppy ride, rocking, and add cupholders in the back.
