We have a family of 4 and it works great for us. I love the power it has and the thought that went into the layout of of controls in the cabin. We have taken it on 2 vacations so far and it handles great on the highway as well as off-road. I went off-roading for the first time in my life in the Georgia mountains and had no problems climbing steep revines ind driving through streams. I would recommend the step up bars if you have small children, since it sits so high off the ground. It's the best car purchase that I have ever made.
