This has been a great car for me. Perfect size, easy to put seats down and fill up with bigger things. If you maintain well, can last a long time. my only complaint is that it isn't great on gas, but then it is an automatic 6 cylinder SUV. I get 22 regularly, and up to 24. I would absolutely love if there was an option of a manual, but that wasn't an option. It does great in the snow, also.
