Sporty yet family friendly.

Appearance: the vehicle sits higher of the ground than a lot of vehicles but is still compact. It comes in a variety of colors and is rather sleek looking. Reliability: I originally bought the car from someone else and it was already high on mileage, but several years later it is over 200, 000 miles and still chugging along pretty well overall, minus a few trips to the shop for minor wear and tear.

Spacious SUV with good gas mileage!

100, 000 miles and I have yet to have an issue! The most reliable car I have ever owned. Extremely comfortable seating for long rides, smooth acceleration and breaking. No engine troubles! Spacious seating and strong ac. No expensive mechanic fees because there’s never a reason to take it in except for the classic reasons, I. E., oil / tires / air filter.

- Emily S

The most important thing is the versatility of the vehicle it can haul 4 people or help someone move a couch.

I like the comfort of the cab and how roomy it is for 2 or more people to sit for a long drive of over an hour. I like the rear trunk and backseat backs are all plastic coated so if I was to transport in the back it wouldn't rip the seats. I dislike the cloth seating and overall value of the vehicle is going down over the years.
