Good value foe AWD and a few other options
Where do I begin??? The biggest problem I have had so far is that I have to have the pistons replaced. I heard it knocking on cold start ups and the dealership told me it was the pistons. It makes a rubbing noise... like metal to metal... dealership told me it was the noise of the exhaust... not convinced. It has happened three time so far that while the car is running and in park, I go to shift into drive and it won't shift. You have to turn the car off and then back on and it resets itself. Then in the past two weeks (this has happened twice) I put the car in park and turn it off. I will be walking into the house and the car rolls about an inch or two. I know when you park the vehicle there is a little bit of play, but this is more than that little bit. I haven't discussed this with the dealership yet, but I need an oil change in a couple of weeks so I will do it then.
I love it, but its very discouraging when you buy something brand new and it has more problems than the very first beater I ever had. Definitely lots of room. I have the tent package so I camp in it a lot in the summertime. Love the all wheel drive in the snow. I couldn't ask for a better 4 wheel drive vehicle. Could use more power, but its good enough.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
