Pros: Looks like an SUV but rides like a car
Cons: no dislikes whatsoeverLove this vehicle...Provides comfort,smooth ride,looks sporty but yet has enough room for my children,my husband and I all to be comfortable...Gets very good gas mileage and has been very low maintanence...Would suggest this vehicle to anyone with children
Pros: Fast, good looking, seats 7, never got stuck in winter, heated seats, loaded.
Cons: Drivers seat very thin, poor turning radius, better mileage if you commute.
Advice: Get the loaded model, I'm very happy with mine.Surprising power from the pedal, lots of dash digital info. Very nice interior and exterior, sporty also. All I'm missing is some rims and I'm set.
Pros: All of the standard features: auto climate control, traction control, daytime lights, etc.
Cons: It's a little plain looking
Advice: The slightly higher end models have remote start, may be worth considering.I have owned this vehicle for a little over 4 months and am very happy with my choice. Here in Colorado, I got my 1st chance to test drive this in the snow and ice, and it passed with flying colors! This is a great all weather vehicle. Compared to the Honda Pilot and Toyota Highlander, the fuel economy is virtually the same, the car is much quicker than either, as well as many cars. In real world, you should be able to buy this for at least $10k cheaper than either of the two. It's definitely worth looking at.
Pros: Remote start
Cons: placement of window controls
Advice: Drive the car and you will buy. They are a good deal for the current selling priceI recently purchased an 07 XL7 I have to dis-agree with what the professionals say. I think it is a good buy. It rides real good, the engine does make a lot of noise. I think it has to do with the type of cooling fan they are using. but it is not that bad. the ride is great nice feel. now if you are going to try and race the car the performance may not be as good, but for what the average driver does it will hold up. it looks good on the inside when driving you can see the road. you do not feel like you are in a truck 10 miles off the ground but in a car. the model we purchased has a DVD, leather, front and rear climate controls, three rows of seats, and what i love a remote start. we got all of this for under 25,000. I think the car is a great deal for the price. and it does not look bad, and it cranks our 252 hp. you can not beat that........
