This vehicle is gorgeous inside and out. Leather interior, heated and cooled seats, automatic lift gate, push button rear seat let down, technology such as Bluetooth, rear parking detection, CD. This vehicle takes very good care of me!! I have replaced a bearing in driver side rear tire, that is it.

Vehicle is wonderful. Features--sunroof, lift tailgate, fold down passenger seats in rear. Great sound system including CD player. Navigation included. Great gas mileage--get 20. 2 miles per gallon on highway and slightly less in city. Minimal maintenance process--oil change every 5, 000 miles.

I love the Bluetooth capability and interactive phone. I wish it would specify which tire has low pressure when it alerts. Since it does have a large GPS screen, it would be nice if it had the backup camera too.
