Rides like a truck.
Pros: Heated seats
Cons: Automatic oil change light.Overall great tough vehicle. But the ride gets a bit bumpy depending wich way you go.
Cons: Size is too smallAfter driving an Isuzu Rodeo this vehicle seemed too small. It handles very nicely and rides well. Like the looks, but wish it was just a little longer and wider.
Cons: Gas mileage could be better.We bought this car new and we love it. We haven't had any problems with it. We love the space and the size of it, Ploenty of room.
Lots of Bells and Whistles, But ...
Pros: Incredibly well-equipped vehicle ... small SUV bordering on the luxurious.
Cons: Gas mileage, noisy cabin.My '08 VOGA Edition (limited production model in the Premier series) looks fabulous, and for the most part is a very serviceable vehicle. A strong, well-performing V6, dual a/c, power seat, moonroof, leather (almost white), CD changer (which actually works!) are but a few amenities. The downside: gas mileage (overall just about 18 mpg), probably due to an antiquated 4 speed transmission (the newer models have a 6 speed); it's built on a truck platform, so the ride is a bit stiff; there always seems to be a rattle or creak (took 5 visits to find the most annoying one); not as quiet on the inside as previous SUV's I've owned. I've still got about half the warranty left, and will likely consider selling it just before it expires. Let's hope that when it becomes a Lincoln in '11, those negative issues will be addrssed.
