Purchased As New
okay so i looovveee my car! Ive had it now for two years and over 36,000 miles. Its been very low maint. PROS: good fuel economy, loovvee my turn radius hehe i can get in and out of ANYWHERE. I cant help but stare at it after its all washed and shiny love the sport look.I felt silly lookin at mini vans i really wanted a sport utility but the price of one was too high and driving this doesnt make me feel like im old it is def more sporty then others on the market. I have 1 child, a husband, two older parents and an occasional visiter from out of town which is one of the reasons why i bought it. I needed something affordable that would sit at the very least six. At this price range nothing comes close. We were looking at the 9 but price range for the 9 was too high with almost same 3rd row seating room. I purchased the 5 when my daughter was a new born and i couldnt imagine not having rear sliding doors. I dont have to worry about dinging the paint when i get my baby in or out of vehicle. Love love love that all the seats fold down. i've moved stuff u would never imagine. huge bbq pits, 55 inch dlp tv, ceramic floor tiles with grout and all, i used and abuse my 5 like it was a truck at times. CONS: NO REAR HEAT... hate that. The rear Air is not strong enough to reach all the way back to third row, wish they had ind. climate control for each seat. Power steering locks up when turned hard right or left for more then 5-10 seconds and ur not moving. You have to turn off engine then turn wheel to right and turn back on so u can unlock it. Freaked out when that happend the first time. Was trying to get out of a tight parking space into heavy traffic and had wheel turned and ready. The rear seats really are made for children or small adults but great extra to have. The tires are expensive when they need to be replaced. Wish the rear seats had more power outlets. Over all i dont think i would have been as happy with any other vehicle. ZOOM-ZOOM!!
