A great safe family vehicle
The 6 disk CD changer would not eject the Cd's unless you turned the car off and then on again, sometimes several times. The warranty of course replaced the CD player.
The Navigation Cd's were not up to date when I bought the vehicle and often give slightly wrong directions or you may be unable to enter a certain adress. As of now 11/15/07 my dealer is not aware of any Navigation CD updates.
The interior is EXTREMELY roomy and comfortable. The drivers seat is especially roomy when compared with the Toyota Highlander.
I was disapointed when a friend pointed out that there were no rear air vents, and no dual climate control in the front, which I would have expected both on a vehicle with navigation, leather, etc...
The vehicle handles amazingly well in terrible weather. Those of us on the east coast may remeber the 2 larger storms on valentines day 2006 and the one a few weeks after. I am in college and while my friends were all shoveling out their vehicles I simply cleared some snow from in front of the tires and wind shied and drove through. I also drove in 3 hours of highway driving in the second storm and the car handled beautifully the entire time, even though the roads hadn't been plowed.
Overall I am pleased with the safety comfort and handling of this car as well as the fact that it is beautiful. I don't know too much about engines and that end, but if you are looking to move to a safer vehicle, from a small car, I would definitely look at the Endeavor.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
