Great car, i have the sport SE model, with bigger wheels, spare tire on the trunk, 4WD, 5-speed the lot, and love it, great car, gets me almost anywhere. The only problem, is it engine, it a good one, powerful enough for suburban areas, as well as the hills of Seattle, but its SO thirsty, on average, your luck to get 240 miles to the tank, which is bare 14 MPG, OUT OF A V6!! and its even worse at highway speeds, doing 70, in 5th gear the engine is at 3000 RPM, which is why this car is so terrible for traveling to a from work, it really needs another gear because of the gearing, but other than that, its a good car, only money I've put into it, is in oil and the stereo (factory stereo is terrible, as well as the speakers)

Good starter SUV

If you keep it maintained then it will drive and handle well. It does have decent acceleration but it is a gas guzzler.
