A great car for the money, if you are not tall, and don't mind the noise
Nothing has gone wrong with this vehicle.
This vehicle has plenty of power for everyday driving, but not so much to overwhelm the women whom these vehicles are clearly designed for.
The overall performance of this car is great.
One of 2 complaints I have is with the comfort level. As stated above, this vehicle is designed for soccer moms. I'm 6'-2", and I can't drive it for very long without feeling extremely cramped. The other downside is the unbelievable road noise. The wind noise at the front windows is comparable to a typhoon. The noise from the tires does not help at all.
The fuel economy is what you might expect from a vehicle this size when paired with the strong engine. On a day to day basis, we see 15-17 mpg, with 80% of that being highway driving. The very most we have ever seen is 20. That was achieved on a long trip, where there was nothing, but highway driving from fill to fill.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
