Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
I get very good gas mileage. The only thing I don't like about my car - or the thing I dislike most is the fact that I have to take it to a mechanic to have the transmission fluid checked - there's no dip-stick in the engine which I find very annoying.
Overall a great car. It's a little light on horsepower compared to the Outback, but less expensive and just as capable, if not more so, in the "outback" (i.e off-road). Looks good also, I recommend it highly.
worse car I have ever owned
Size is perfect. Plenty of cabin room for 4 adults. Lots of head room. Only car close is the Bentley GTC for $130K more. I'll take the E350A.
Misses out not having lumbar seat and automatic garage door opener. Other than that great pick-up and excellent highway handle. True to its claims of 25+ highway mileage.
I have owned many cars in my 77 years & this one is great!
A very fun ride! Excellent handling, good performer. Just went up 95 to Jersey from Florida and averaged 30 mpg highway.
