Love it, it ended our love affair with VW
The key got stuck in the ignition twice. Wiper wash froze/broke. That's it.
This SUV is an excellent vehicle, especially for our young family. It is a strong vehicle with a great ride. 5 star safety, and absolutely the most rear leg room of any vehicle out there, our favorite feature. My wife can climb back and join the kids with ease. We have the smaller 3.4 engine, it is a horse, strong and fast. The vehicle is very comfortable. Also we especially like the higher ride. Generally we love the style, inside and out. Our dealer, Del in suburban Philly, has been tops.
One gripe: we only get 16/23 MPG (AWD), but for a SUV, it's pretty good.
Recommendations: Hanger hooks inside the doors, auto-climate option; brakes are adequate, but would prefer stronger. Looks like the 2010 version gets much better mileage, but they may have shortened the rear leg room. I hope not.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
