I love this SUV!
Overall a very low maintenance, dependable vehicle. I am car maintenance illiterate. All I do is change the oil and rotate the tires regularly and major mfg. checks.
Minor annoyance - seat belts don't retract all the way after about a years use. They were the same on my '97 Pathfinder.
Minor annoyance - I'm 5'2" and I have trouble reaching and closing the rear hatch. It is stiff and heavy. My friends Jeep is much easier to close.
When you need the power, it delivers immediately, unlike my '97 Pathfinder which merged & accelerated like a snail.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
