Pros So much room, extra row of seating, little areas to store things everywhere, extra power outlets throughout (5 total), great looking, feel safe!
Cons Interior fabric is dull, wish it had a built in roof rack (You can buy one though).
Summary Couldn't ask for a better car for the price. With both my wife and I newly out of college we needed a reliable SUV to make trips from Arizona to Michigan and back several times a year to visit family. Thus far we have put 15k miles on the XL7 without a problem. We enjoy all the extra space we have, and our son and dog fit nicely in the back.
Pros size, cargo space, especially behind the third row seat, engine, acceleration, handling, technology, etc.
Cons gas milage.
Summary Wonderful alternative to suv's costing 10k more. I looked at the likes of the Mazda 5 and Honda CRV but after you have 5,6 or seven people in the vehicle these competitors fall very short. I was not willing to put my kids in the back/essentially 3rd row in the Madza 5 or Kia Rondo, if hit from behind the passengers would have a new set of braces from the bumper of the car that hit you. Not to mention they would probably not survive a rear end crash. Those vehicles are just too small for a family plus luggage.
Pros Looks nice and has a lot of features. Good Price
Cons Car engine shut off while driving. Steering wheel became hard to turn, gas pedal would not work, dash lights lit up. I coasted to a stop and I was able to restart the car right away. The next day towed it to Suzuki who found nothing wrong with it.
Summary I loved the car until the other day when the engine shut off. I was lucky I was not on a major highway.
