Comfy, but lacks refinement

ReviewOverall it's a comfortable vehicle with lots of leg room in the rear. However, using it for travel to cycling events has shown major problems. With a hitch rack on the back and gear inside, the rear end squats and the front raises up. This causes the front to wander dangerously, especially in the rain. The tire wear problem is well known and at 35k miles, expect to replace them. There have been numerous rattles in the doors and currently the rear seat vibrates loudly even at low speeds. The FWD just has poor traction and easily spins its wheels at the stop light.
Best FeaturesRear seat room and rear area storage are deceptively large. The interior and exterior are attractive.
Worst FeaturesNav accuracy has been an issue when it's taken me through small towns instead of highways (despite settings to the contrary) adding an hour or more to the trip. I use Google Maps on the iPhone instead. The rear squat/front wheel grip is a real problem that seems unsolvable.
