Our family of four plus pets have been very fond of this car. We have had no breakdown with it, no troubles except for the third row seat release, which doesn't always work as easily as it should to remove and replace the third row seats. Otherwise, the car has been quiet and comfortable to drive, mechanically reliable, and a joy on long trips. It's hard to understand how one reviewer in this column has gotten such a lemon.
fold-down, removeable third-row seats--great to have, but one works really well, and one sticks a lot.
