Pros love the car, it's balance in handling considering it easily fits 4 people, overall quality of materials and construction
for a starting price (base 2 wheel drive, under $22000, that has enough standard "stuff" to be quite livable.
Clutch play is minim
Cons Would like to see some colors carried over from the Oxford plant, rather than ALL different colors.
Wish the front seat back adjustment was on the inboard side of the seat instead of near the b pillar.
Rear bench seat soon!
Summary Sad to see a piece of automotive journalism that people read as an expert guide with so many inaccuracies. It is NOT all time all 4-wheel drive, but front wheel drive with the ability to transfer up to 50% to the rear wheels. The use of standard front wheel drive primarily preserves fuel consumption. To start an article with the words "positively portly, pumped up version" certainly casts a negative light only to be followed paragraphs later, that it handles quite nimbly, even in the front wheel drive mode. All of the center rail accessories are moveable, so having the iPod cradle under the brake lever is an operator error, not a design flaw. I guess my frustration is you pay guys to write inaccurate inform for the masses to believe.
Thanks for your submission!
