Durable, comfortable, capable, and economical
Tire pressure sensor replaced at 50,000 miles.
Nothing else at all.
While it may not be the best car in every category, it would be close. It was inexpensive to purchase, and I've spent next to nothing on repairs (1 tire pressure sensor).
It's easy on tires and I'm still on the original brakes. Good handling and ride on the highways, and fabulous in snow, even without 4WD.
It's not a performance vehicle, but acceleration is acceptable, and better than expected for a 4 cylinder.
Fuel economy is excellent for an SUV: high 20s MPG overall, low 30s on a long trip at 55-65 mph.
At 85,000 miles, the driver's seat is showing some wear.
1) I wish the rear window opened without the whole gate.
2) Rare tire size / few options - you must find something close and argue with the dealers if you're not staying with OEM size.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
