General Comments:

This vehicle burns oil and so I need to change more frequently.

This vehicle is a bit smokey during seasonal/temperature changes.

The vehicle is excellent in the snow.

Rust has presented itself on the rear door latches and some of the trim features.

I have driven cross country at least 4 times and the ride is actually decent for a SUV.

I do not like the fact that I cannot check my transmission fluid.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
