A fairly dependable SUV — just so plain!

Okay, so I’m probably being harder on this car than most would for reasons that seem superficial to most. I bought a base model of this used about a month ago, and I’m honestly having some buyer’s remorse over it. I know it’s a base model, but even considering that, for a 2015 it’s just so… soulless. Literally no personality, no interesting details, nothing that sets it apart from every other SUV on the road. Don’t get me wrong, for almost everyone, that’s probably fine, because you’re likely just looking for a practical vehicle that handles terrain well, which in the ~5k miles I’ve already put on this (I drive a LOT) I can say it does with ease. But I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t already looking around for something with a bit more character I could swap this for.

My new favorite car 🚗

Perfect car for all my trips with my children and grandkids. I can sit two cars seats in the back comfortably. I had a total knee replacement and getting in and out of the car is no problem for me

5.0

Just purchased for my sons. Wanted a 4WD

Just purchased car. It did have the needs I was looking for my teenage sons, 4WD and space for sporting equipment and passengers. Comfortable:) and sporty enough for their age group
