    I am thinking about going and test driving one this week. Nice looking SUV inside and out IMO. I wonder what the quality situation is on it, I am used to problem free Jap cars. :dunno:

    It crossed my mind for a whole 2 seconds before I realized what a joke of a car it is.

    But you should drive whatever you like, no what OT does.

    It looks good on the outside; unfortunately it's just so small. Little bitty SUV. :( Sad because it looked so good when I first saw it on Motor Trend like a year ago.... didn't know it was going to be the size of a little Neon.

    yar, they just did their 2007 ratings in the March issue. went out of their way to say they do not recommend it if i remember correctly. if your in the market, you can get the auto one year round @ Barnes and Nobel i think

    Yea, I love that....but no real rear doors kind of sucks. You have to get out and open your door to let people in the back. :dunno: Plus it is about three grand more.
