Pros Cons
Vehicle interior - has a very good comfort feel Mileage is less than i expected
Comfortable ride & luxurious appointments Front cupholders / lack of good storage space
Headlights are bright and deliver good visibility Would like spare tire concealed
Handling & visibity - solid and easy to see other drivers Needs better looking rims
Engine has more than adequate power for my suburban driving needs Need to remove rear seat headrest to flatten rear seats. this is most veriest bad!
Storage and space, well thought out, easy to stow Rear window could be larger & allow more light to vehicle
High degree of utility for smaller suv Audio interface too labor intensive for safe driving
Safety & reliability - car has a great reputation Tires should be better quality when buying fully equipped car
Vehicle exterior - good styling & very good paint finish Window noise - when rear window down, vibrates in front
Mileage per gallon - impressed especially after owning a jeep. Driving over bumps - it feels too low and the shock isn't absorbed well.
