Ideal large family vehicle

Edmunds.com logo Edmunds.com 4/30/2015 floridamom6

The car has a smooth ride, and road noise is minimal on highway. We added a hitch and roof rack, and with 6 adults and loaded with cargo, the car handles quite nicely except that it is underpowered, especially if it's fully loaded. Acceleration and hill climbs are slower than I would like. This car has a lot of cargo space with room for car seats in 2nd and 3rd rows, though access to 3rd row can be a bit challenging for an average adult. 3rd row is best for kids or small adults as legroom is limited. We are happy with this car. Great family or roadtrip vehicle. It's held its value well, and we will be holding on to it for a long time.

Favorite Feature : We like the roominess for passengers and the cargo space available when 3rd row is down. 3rd row seating is nice, and it even has cupholders and good visibility out of rear side windows. Legroom in 3rd row is okay for small adults, but 2nd row is quite comfortable for an 3 average or larger adults or 3 car seats. Car handles highway drives very well. Seats are comfortable for long trips, and ride is smooth. Car has held up quite well over our 4 year ownership term. We also use it for camping trips and have had no issue with trekking over rocky, muddy, or dirty roads. Highly recommend!

Suggested Improvement : Car is underpowered for its size especially when fully loaded with passengers and/or cargo, but we handle this aspect by just driving more conservatively. Fuel economy is not great, but that's not unexpected for a full size SUV with 4x4 capacity. We really don't' have any complaints beyond this. We are very happy with it as a family and roadtrip vehicle.

Average Rating : 4.75
