Pros Roomy, Good radio, Ipod connectivity, Good gas milage for size, Good pulling Capabilities, Great speed
Cons Rough Ride, Tires expensive to replace, really bad blind spot on the right side, uncomfortable headrest
Summary We had the borrego since October and it has been a pretty good family car. The room is nice and fairly good gas milage. We get about 400 miles out of a tank on the highway with the V6, 300 on roads. It is good in the winter and with its power we have gone through much snow while others were getting stuck. even my Pontiac Aztek got stuck and the Borrego went right through the snow no problem. We even pullled out the Azteck!
Pros Large, spacious, fairly quiet, has the usual gadgetry you expect on a better quality 30k+ vehicle and it all worked well.
Cons The seats are a torture chamber for some drivers. Handling on snow was no better than my Honda Civic, but it felt stable and secure on wet and dry highways. That slipping and sliding may have been from the standard all-season tires.
Summary We rented a Borrego for a two-day trip, about 7 hours driving each day. The seats have a very firm padding in a molded shape that either you like (as my wife did) or which does you physical harm, as it has done to me. My back was a little sore at the end of the first day, quite sore after the second, but unfortunately today, after returning the car, I can hardly walk. I do not normally have back problems. and I hope this does not mean that I now will. This is too bad, since many other aspects of the car are pleasant, though not noticeably better than other suv's I have rented. For some people this may be a very good car, though it seems to me you'd better spend a couple of days in one to find out before shelling out that much money.
