It's a cool car and runs great. I love the interior!!

Good and comfortable. Enough room for my family on long road trips. Vented seats okay gas mileage. Rides smooth on highway and side streets. The interior is leather and the seats are automatic. The dash lets you know miles until empty, tells you if you have low tire pressure needs oil changes check engine.

It is perfect, comfortable, reliable, fast.

It is great, it is fast & big enough for a family. It is good on gas mileage. Has four wheel drive for winter and runs perfect in the snow. You will not regret purchasing one. It is the best choice I have ever made. It is also comfortable for long rides, has heated seats & TV installed.

- Britt R

Perfect and comfortable for family, but be ready for repair cost.

For big families is perfect! Very comfortable, but the one problem is if anything breaks the cost for repairs are high. Besides that you will have plenty of room for the kids, DVD, cup holder that heats and cools the liquids and does not consume too much gas like our older SUV car.
