I bought this LE model brand new. Since then it has been driven by 4 members of the family for a total of over 120,000 miles and runs as good as when we first bought it with no big repairs except the A/C. In fact, it still has the original exhaust system. We are in the very snowy Pocono Mountains in PA. It is only so-so in snow on the road that is over 3" without snowtires but I'd still recommend it to anybody. The only better vehicle I've driven is a Toyota RAV4.
Interior is just right for an average or small person.
Better performance in very snowy conditions on mountains.It handles fair at best.
