Very versatile cargo and passenger features, very comfortable on long trips. Very competent off road. Very reliable and cheap to maintain.
Engine is responsive, smooth, and reliable. 4WD system easy to use and works well (auto 4wd is good even on pavement). Transmission smooth and responsive, though it could use an extra gear between 1st and 2nd.
Three real adults can sit there for hours. Large under-seat space to store backpacks, jackets, etc. Very effective A/C in rear.
In 7 years it has been very cheap to run, with only routine maintenance and one warrantee repair (A/C actuator, 4wd control module). The exceptions are fuel use and tires. The OEM tires are P-series when they should be LT for this class of vehicle.
