An overall wonderful small SUV. The build quality is rock solid. My experience with reliability has been excellent, I have never owned a vehicle so reliable. The engine and transmission work wonderfully, and the engine is suprisingly powerful for a 2.0 L.
Front end styling, extremely versatile interior, ride qaulity, reliability, build quality, and it's outstanding stereo.
An option of a V6 and a column mounted automatic transmission gear selector would be the only improvements I would suggest. I think the vehicle could use a little extra room in the front and a little walkway like through the front seats.
