I bought my 7-passenger XL-7 a month ago and the only disappointments are the dumb reviews. This truck is great, not cheap looking inside and has much better 3rd row seats than the RAV4. I don't understand where these other reviews I've seen are coming from. In all my research (and I did A LOT) I never came across anything about this vehicle being unreliable over the last 5 years, which is pretty darn good. It usually does not have any defects or people complaining about how they had to get this or that fixed as in MOST other consumer reviews. I mean give me a break, it's nice inside, the woodgrain looks expensive, and it is comfortable...but probably not for larger people. I love mine, and I got it for a great price.
The interior front looks great, not cheap like some others. Everything is great. Everyone tells me it's nice lookin'.
I wish people would stop bashing it for not being a luxury car, I mean give me a break. It's #1 off-road in it's class. Take a test-drive for yourself!
