Pros:It works. Not the most exciting vehicle I've own, but just gets the family point A to Point B

Cons:Not fond of the automatic transmission. I come from manuals so autos are tough for me to review. The shift is not as snappy as I prefer. Solution is to go into manual shift and it works better for me.
