Either you'll love it or hate it
Recall for faulty head gaskets.
Replaced a leaking valve cover gasket.
Replaced a faulty fuel sender.
Replaced both rear windows and power window assemblies - the windows had cracked and detached from the winder mechanism frames.
It's AWD, but still seems to burn through tires - the front OEM tires were done at 16K miles, and all four replacements are about due now (30K later), despite regular rotations.
AWD version handles heavy rain and ice storms very well (we don't get snow where I live), but gets about 2 MPG less than the claimed MPG.
Real world mileage for AWD version - 18 MPG city, 24 MPG highway.
Recommended fuel for the 3.5L V-6 is premium, and it seems to run much better on it.
Large blind spots to the rear.
Poor luggage room for its size.
Very smooth and quiet on the highway.
Very comfortable seating for four adults - five is a stretch unless the fifth passenger is a child.
Powerful V-6 mates well with the CVT, but it still takes some getting used to.
Love it or leave it styling.
My wife loves it, despite its problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
