A solid, durable, and powerful vehicle for the money
Battery was changed early on, free of charge.
This is an extremely reliable vehicle.
The engine is so quiet it's easy to forget you've started the vehicle once inside.
The four-wheel-drive works great in the winter, but the automatic setting is not very effective.
The rear door openings are a bit small, making entering and exiting the vehicle more difficult for some.
Interior quality is good, but the materials used could be better, although the knobs and buttons have a good solid and durable feel.
The transmission occasionally doesn't want to shift, but this is only at higher speeds.
Having 275 horsepower, and 275lb-ft of torque, the engine effortlessly hauls this vehicle around.
In terms of handling, this is no Corvette, but handling is much better than most Sport-Utility Vehicles.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
