Great first car and overall good buy.
I love how sporty and versatile it is, and I really use it for everything. If I purchased this vehicle over again the only difference is that I would get leather seating because the microfiber is an awful hair magnet and I have 4 dogs and constantly transport other furry pets too. Does awesome on road trips, but my 6'5 boyfriend could do with some more leg room during longer trips. I have roof racks for hauling outdoor equipment like kayaks or camping gear. The seats fold down and I have actually used this to move some small furniture items and much more. The AWD is perfect for off-roading and inclement weather and I have never been stranded in this vehicle. I am only 5' and this vehicle has the best visibility for me because of it is large windows and highly adjustable seat. Very low maintenance until around 100,000 miles which will take quite a while if you buy it new. I have had mine for 3 years and put over 50,000 miles on it because I love to travel and commute 20 min each way to work. Overall a great buy, especially for a first vehicle because of it is reliability and safety features.
