Very reliable car! Total cost of ownership very low, even after servicing.
Never had a vehicle that was better at towing, passenger comfort/room, construction material hauling, and driver comfort.
Runs like a Swiss watch when fully loaded with wife & four kids & all their stuff, dog with kennel, fully loaded rooftop cargo box, while towing a 19' ski boat.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
