Advice: Buy itThis is a great vehicle for the money. And yes there was a burning oil smell the first 3 months I had it, but the smell eventually went away as the dealer said it would. I have 16,000 miles on it already (I drive it a lot!) and the only complaint I have is the back breaks needed to be adjusted and cleaned after making a loud squeaking sound ($60 bill) Otherwise, this is a great vehicle and I highly recommend it.
Advice: Don't believe poor reviews, test drive it for yourself!Good thing I test drove this vehicle and didn't believe the whiney sad reviews on some 'other' car web sites. It has 'standard' all the options that used to be known as 'loaded'. If you want to watch DVD's maybe you should stay home and let your kids look at the window when you are driving(hey the may actually learn where they live!). It's a low-priced very comfy, small suv and it rides like a nice truck not a car(because in case you didn't know, an SUV is NOT a car!gasp!). The interior is nice, the ride is quiet and smooth. You MUST test drive to see for yourself.
Pros: Third row seating
Cons: There is a blind spot you will need to adjust mirrors for, didn't take long to adjust to
Advice: Test drive and you will see, premium package is way to go for the priceGreat drive, smooth and handles great. I fell in love with it during test drive and bought it the same day. Lots of bells and whistles on the premium model.
