This vehicle is very safe.

I like the size, the elevation from the ground. I dislike the ability to program the DVD while driving (even as the passenger), and the fact that GPS updates are no longer available.

- Angela H

It has great legroom in the back seat and is roomy enough for 3-4 kids

It is great for transporting my three kids and all of their stuff! Roomy enough for adults in the back rows. Sometimes it feels almost too big and wide to fit in some parking spots.

- Brandy C

No need to use a rental car.

I love my vehicle and have not had any major issues with it. I've ever driven several hundreds of miles to the beach a few times each year and it's been reliable.
