This is my first SUV. Drove a L300 Saturn 2204, and a 1993 coupe Saturn. I took a chance on this SUV because it fit my budget, is cute, and was a pretty smooth test drive. Its very comfortable and has never stalled or stopped...yet. The seats are comfy, and it warms up ok. The AC doesn't blow out as hard as it should and the cupholder is not in a good place. Its still a pretty smooth ride and turns corners smooth as well. It could also get better gas mileage. That part sucks but at least it takes REGULAR.I feel its a very reliable, safe and practical car for anyone. One more thing...going up hills the performance could be better.
