This car was the perfect first car for a teen driver. I used it all throughout high school and into my college years. My car finally started to wear out a few years after I finished school. Plenty of room but not too large that it is hard to park. Always felt safe in the winters. Loved the 4 wheel drive.

A solid car - minimal maintenance

by from Ocean, NJ on August 8, 2017

The care met all my needs. Even though it's a compact SUV the extra room goes a long way - such as Home Depot stops for large items or putting your dog int he back.

Beast in Vermont winters!

by from Montpelier, VT on July 27, 2017

This is the first car I have ever owned, I bought it with 115k miles on it in 2015, and I'm only around 148k as of July 2017. Being honest, this car is not great on gas if you're going on road trips o...
This is the first car I have ever owned, I bought it with 115k miles on it in 2015, and I'm only around 148k as of July 2017. Being honest, this car is not great on gas if you're going on road trips or any long distance driving, due to the 6cyl engine that's in the vehicle. However, I live in one of the worst spots in Vermont that always gets hit the WORST in the winters. I have NEVER, EVER, slid or spun out or had ANY problems with this car in the winter. I don't believe it's because of my tires (basic winter tires), this vehicle is truly the best car I have ever driven in the snow, compared to the subaru my parents had when I first started driving. Going back and forth to college, this car has lots of room to transport things and is an absolute BEAST. I have never had any huge problems with the car, just the normal wear and tear with new brakes, oil changes, etc... I would definitely recommend this car to first-time car buyers. The price and the reliability is great for those looking for a mid-size reliable car to go back and forth.

Good power (v6), 4 wheel drive, enjoyed driving this suv. Trying to find another one up to 2012 with low mileage. No luck so far?

I like it because it is comfortable. It rides really well. There is plenty of space in front and the back, s o you are not squashed in. The only two things I do not like about it is, it is not really good on gas, and there is a third head rest in the back seat which covers some of my view in review mirror. Overall it is a very good vehicle.

I like the height of the drivers seat, the visibility through car windshield, and responsiveness of the vehicle. I had 130,000 miles on the car and could have driven it a lot longer. I never had to make any major repairs - just replace tires! Excellent vehicle.

Gets me from point A to point B

by from on June 14, 2017

Runs Well, but had a few problems that had to be fixed before I bought it. The car gets pretty good gas mileage for a v6 engine.
