- $8,121 - $10,488
- No trim specified for this review
- good handling, good fuel economy for a 4 wheel drive
- short wheel base makes ride a little rough
I talked my wife into buying this car based on research. We have only had it a few months but have found it an excellent buy. All wheel drive that does not intrude and decent fuel mileage are great features. She bought it to carry video and other training equipment which it does nicely (low liftover). Mileage is not as good as Honda Accord it replaced, but good for a 4 wheel drive. Lights really light up the highway and warming seats are a bonus. Also, one of the few 4 wheel drive small suv's with a manual transmission (which we like). Has an excellent reputation for durability...we will see, we put about 20,000 miles per year. Might benefit from a 6th gear to improve gas mileage and reduce RPMs at freeway speeds.
