ReviewAn adequate vehicle which serves my needs. I wouldn't consider it exceptional, but I think it compares favorably with other vehicles in its class.This vehicle came equipped with running boards, a feature I would have insisted upon. However, I find the running boards to be a detriment to entering and exiting the vehicle ... for children maybe? Also, the cup holders are behind the console shift lever -- between the lever and the front storage compartment, making them extremely difficult to use. Speedometer markings are difficult to read. Vehicle has on a couple of occasions gone into passing gear arbitrarily.
Best Features4 wheel disc brakes, ease with which the rear seats can be lowered and raised, reasonable comfort and enjoyable driving and versatility of utilization.
Worst FeaturesRevise the console to make shift lever/cup holder/storage compartment more accessible. Throttle system needs some serious consideration to prevent arbitrary acceleration.
