Pros Relative noise free ride, not bad handling, good transmission. Roomy firs row of seats.
Cons Engine power
2nd and 3rd row seating
lack of cargo cover
rear door quality
heated front seat
front passenger seat
Summary R/T 6cyl. engine is strongly underpowered for the mass it is hauling. Interior trim and finish tasteless and of extremely low quality. The choice is between US Government Grey no. 1 and crappy yellowish-brown. Both trimmed with black.2nd and 3rd row seating only for small children. Put a teenager or an adult there and you will immediately hear about cruel and unusual punishment. The matter might be saved if the 2nd row could be pushed all the way back against 3rd row, or, folded and pushed all the way against front seats AND SECURED. Unfortunately it is not the case, and the result is hauling two rows of useless seats behind.
You would expect that after remote start the heater or AC and the fan would run at full power to bring the temperature to the setpoint. Not so. It runs in accordance with the speed that was left after last ride.
Third seat shall not be an excuse for lack of cargo cover. Why everybody must see what I'm carrying in my cargo compartment?
Glove compartment so small that after shoving manuals in there is hardly any space left for gloves. The beverage cooler above glove compartment is a waste of space. It cools well only during freezing weather.
Rear doors are missing internal sfiffener. The outer shell plays loosely when shutting the door close. How sun they will fall apart is to be seen.
In order to remove and use the spare tire you need a degree in nucrear physics, although, it may not be enough for putting the tire back. It surely is easier to do inside the showroom or garage, but at the edge of the roadside ditch during inclement weather, that's different tune.
Interior light very pale, making the occupant looking like cadavers. The greenish light is shed on the driver and passenger seat continuously during nighttime, but what for, no one knows.
Heated front seats saounds like great feature. Although only relatively narrow central strip of the seat is heated. It results with feeling warm or hot temperature in the center of your pants and freezing temperature on the sides.
Fuel economy shown on the manufacturer's sticker is rather wishful thinking. In the reality you can expect anything between 13 and 14 for the city and 16 to 17 for highway driving. Fuel use like by big 5l. 8 cylinder engine, but the available power brings you back to 6-cylinder 3.5l reality. Had the engine better valve train, perhaps the fuel economy would be better, but it takes Honda or Toyota to get one.
The front passenger seat is an example of implementing of bad ideas to save a buck. Only manual adjustment is available and you won't get anything better, even for the money. For people with disabilities it may be serious factor.
120 volt receptacle looks interesting until you learn that the available power is merely 150 watts. What for? for a pencil sharpener?
Unfortunately, the list is far from being exhay=usted, but my patience is gone.
Stay away from this car or think it over twice.
