Best Features

Favorite Features, now that I have pointed out all the negative, after almost being in a very serious accident yesterday when this car shut off in the middle of an intersection, this is tough. The most attractive features are, comfortable for large families. We have 5 kids. It is decent size (No cargo space with the 3rd row seat) for people. Good stock stereo system. It feels solid.

Worst Features

Where should I begin? If and when the dealership figures out why it doesn't like starting, then why it likes shutting off when it feels like it, that would be a great improvement! I don't want to be killed when it shuts off and the drivers around me can't stop!
