ReviewI love the truck, but for its oddity.
We traded in a BMW 528i for it because
we have kids that desperately need
space (note to SUV haters: stop
legislating huge car seats and I
wouldn't need an SUV). The truck is
solid, handles very well except for a
rear axle hop under sudden
acceleration. The controls are unique
in that many are reversed. For
entertainment, go try out the window
and audio controls and see English
ergonomics in action! The brake and
accelerator pedals are close together--
you'll get used to that. I find it
charming, you may not. No matter how
you feel when you buy it, you'll have a
different opinion by the end of the
Best FeaturesThe view: panorama out the hood and side windows. It is easy to clean. The kids see more than 99% of other cars. The audio sounds like you are inside a boom box (fun). High quality and durable. Convenient storage. Sporty feel. Rides without beating you up. Excellent headlights.
Worst FeaturesWe bought the running boards for my short wife. The ergonomics appear to have come from an engineering department on LSD. Tight steering adjustment range. You can see the external temp but may also go offroad trying to find the button. That's what the offroad capability is for.
