It is a nice car. I could have not done any better. I would buy a Ford.

The problem with my vehicle is that when I had my battery die it cost a lot to replace it. This was due to where the location of the battery was. The mechanic had to remove a part of the front end to get to it. The cost of the labor was terrible to replace the battery was about three hundred dollars. Then there is a problem in the transmission that is a recall and I am waiting for the part to come in. No one likes recalls. Then the trunk handle came off in my hand. So I am waiting for that to be fixed when the recall is taken care of. I do like the car I feel safe in it. The ride is very good smooth and sometimes you do not realize how fast you are going. It's very good on gas. The interior has a lot of room. The seats are very comfortable. The driver's seat could come up more. I am short so seeing over the dash is getting hard. There is plenty of storage space in the car. In all the car is great but I wish that I would have researched the car better. Besides the battery who knows what else is hard to work on. I had to trade in a car that I bought brand new and did not have many miles on it. Plus I gave they ten thousand dollars also. That car had six recall on it. It was a Ford also.

Good little SUV, but could use adjustments in design.

I bought it used at carmax 2yrs ago due to my my car being totaled during hurricane Matthew. The speakers have never worked right. The sound goes in and out from left to right speakers. There has been a water spot that has grown in size above the driver side door/to the left of the windshield, from what I believe to be a blocked drain from the moonroof. The back seats only recline a few inches. I would prefer them to lay as flat as possible (my old SUV did). I don't like that I have an obscured view from the road looking out the back end. I feel I should be able to see better actually looking over my shoulder to back up. Also, the lights are not very bright when in reverse. I was in a pitch black area and still had to stick my head out the window to try and see the edges of the driveway. Aside from those things, it's a decent little SUV. The backup camera is good, but lighting could be better. Dual controls, along with individual controls would be nice. Heated and cooling steering wheel and seats would be fantastic.
