Looks good on the outside, everything else is mediocre to poor
A/C not very good.
For a compact 2011 SUV, fuel economy is not good.
I only rented it. However, I drove nearly 2200 miles in one week, and I believe that's enough time to tell if a car is decent or not.
Obviously I can't speak on reliability based on my above comments, so I won't. However, you would think a brand new 2011 engine wouldn't pulsate while driving. Apparently it does on a Jeep Liberty. Maybe it was the wind on the highway? Constantly? Still, it should be a more smooth ride.
Also, the A/C doesn't work too great when it got above 90 outside. Again, something you wouldn't expect on a 2011.
I like the look of the outside of the car, but the inside is nothing to get excited about. Furthermore, people in the backseat have absolutely no leg room. I know it's considered a "compact" SUV, but the backseat is laughable unless you're 8 years old.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
