It is safe to drive. Seems to be built well.

It is a family SUV which is nice. I can fit our kids and some stuff. But but but. You put the kids and a stroller and a bag and boom! No space. Wait. What? I thought I had a big SUV. No just a car with a big rear end. I cannot afFord the actual big SUV, a true family needs so for now it works.

- Brandon T

It is a great truck. Quiet. Reliable.

My vehicle is the basic model. I was given it. And I wish it had a few more features. I think it should be easier to retrieve the spare tire. The rear wiper should cover the window when active in a wider span. The engine is fine so far. However the vehicle only has 34, 000 miles on it.

- Christina C

Comfortable car, bad on gas mileage.

It is a very comfortable car, it has a lot of room and I love the 3 row seating. The only problem I have is how much gas it takes. Its 15 mpg which can take a big toll. I also love the exterior design and interior leather on the silver edition I have. The car is overall really reliable too.
