Overall wonderful vehicle, some mechanical issues down the road.
Overall I absolutely love my car. We have owned this model vehicle for almost 4 years now and it has always driven smoothly and does well on gas. We have taken this car cross country and on vacation without issues with overheating etc.. The sound system inside is very nice as well as the features within hands reach. I like the overall design of the car. I didn't want to buy a minivan when I became a mom but I also didn't want a gas hog SUV. A few things that I would change about this vehicle would be that I wish the back seat had more room. We are expecting baby #3 and until I test out all three car seats in the back I am not sure they will all fit. Mainly the middle seat in the back. So I would have wanted a larger seating space per seat. Leg room is no issue and the trunk space is great though. We have had a few mechanical issues with this vehicle though recently around 125, 000 miles. We just paid to have a new transmission installed. And we have had to replace the u joint axel in the front right side. Both expensive fixes that I wish hadn't have happened with this vehicle. I want to keep it as long as I can though since I love everything else. But these were definitely surprising issues.
