Excellent reliability and AWD drive
Some sort of fuse box went out in the back... $250 to replace. My rear running lights went out.
Driver side door actuator (controls remote control locking/unlocking) went out.
Key fell apart.
Regular maintenance has been my only real expense. The fit and finish is amazing. When I shut the door on this car, it sounds better than on a brand new American made model. Very tight.
It's a regular snow (or sand) bunny. The AWD feature works great. Goes anywhere.
Wind noise is minimal for an SUV, but not like the sedans.
The ride has more of a truck feel... but that's what it is, really.
Some idiot in design forgot to include a COMPASS. Now maybe that doesn't mean much to you east/west coasters, but to us Midwesterners, it's indispensable.
All and all however, a great car. I'll buy another one when the wheels fall of this one. But that may be in another 20 years.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
