The most reliable car I've owned. Stuff happens when you drive a car year round in a place like New Jersey where they salt or brine the roads if we're about to get a dusting of snow.
The car had lots of power. Did 0-60 in power mode in about 10 seconds. Pulled a 3000 pound trailer without issue.
Both the A/C and heat were the best I've ever had in a car.
I treated it more like a pickup truck than an SUV. I miss it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
