My wife often has to drive our other, bigger, car to haul grandkids around.

10 Sep

You cannot fit more than 4 or 5 grocery bags in the back unless you fold the rear set down.

7 Sep

That has actually happened quite often: restaurants, grocery store, gas stations etc.

11 Aug

31 Jul

Very little trunk space and leg room for back seat passengers.

26 Dec

From the extra performance, larger interior space to the superior perceived build quality.

10 Sep

Plenty of room for me,

22 Jan

Great for shopping lots of room in back with or without the back seats down.

25 Oct

They also frequently complement the smoothness of the ride, and there's plenty of room in the back passenger seats.

13 Jun

Interior room is very impressive for one so small.

6 Jun

In conclusion the Kona EV still has some room for improvement

6 Jul

Its safe and reliable too.

22 Jan

The safe driver features are terrific for driving around any city.

13 Jun

I highly recommend a Kona to anyone looking for a safe, fun car, while still maintaining the sought after gas mileage.

4 Apr

The moon/sun roof is great as the sun really brightens the interior with the light-colored upholstery, the power lift gate is a sheer pleasure (I have a dog who sometimes travels with me in the back and it is convenient to have this feature).

28 Sep

The smaller size is better suited for couples or families (no more than two kids) not needing car seats.

24 Sep

.I'm replacing it with another Mazda CX-5, 100% safe for you and your family.

14 Apr

My touring trim offered exactly what I need: a comfortable, fun, efficient car with all the current safety features that fits my surf gear & dog

8 May

tons of room for me driving and my wife IS 5'8" and it fits her also.

17 Jan

If space is an issue, the CX-5 has a third row.

18 Dec

The cabin is really quiet and has a lot of trunk space.

8 Dec

Mazda is exactly the amount of space i need.

5 Jun

There is lots of storage space, the instrument cluster is well laid out and the hands off feature works well to keep your eyes on the road when adjusting the radio.

7 Jul

Has plenty of cargo space and really like the 40/20/40 rear seats fold down options.

29 Mar

but once I sat in I knew this was the car more room in the front seats and really nice console.

14 Apr

2) The interior space is good and meets my needs easily.

10 Jan

There is lots of space for drink storage with cup holders and bottle storage.

13 May

And I must say, this car is so safe, so cool, so comfortable.

24 Sep

.I'm replacing it with another Mazda CX-5, 100% safe for you and your family.

5 Apr

It’s safe, stylish, comfortable, great gas mileage and the technology upgrades are abundant.

8 Feb

The navigation system seems a little slow and not real easy to use

24 Dec

The 2018 Mazda Navigation isn't as good as iPhone

17 Feb

after 1 week and 150 miles back up camera and Navigation went out for a few hours.

4 Apr

Lots of room in the back, fits my dog and all our camping gear for road trips.

12 Mar

That paired with Toyota's reliability, the hybrid's two-tone paint job, the hybrid system itself and its impressive performance, and the overall luxury feel of the vehicle inside and out has made this the perfect, first SUV for my little family.

20 Feb

Luggage rails on the top are unusable and now solid.

14 Oct

Overall, great value for the money if you need to get from point A to point B with cats, dogs, loads of groceries or a kayak.

22 Apr

I need a midsized vehicle because I have kids, and I need an SUV because I live in the southern Midwest and we have precipitation like most of the country.

2 Oct

Married 48 years and 3 daughters.

22 Aug

Personally, I would recommend this vehicle to anyone that is looking at a Rav, it's very roomy, the whole family is very comfy.

10 Jul

Heated seats are also quick to warm and there is a lot of room for people and cargo in the car.

2 Jul

It is just the right size; for manuvering and difficult parking spaces.

23 Apr

Plenty of room and very comfortable seats.

7 Apr

As a woman over 6 foot tall let me say, this car has more than enough room for me.

4 Apr

Lots of room in the back, fits my dog and all our camping gear for road trips.

11 Mar

There is also lots of cargo space.

27 Oct

It can be even zippier than those cars I mentioned when in Sport mode, all while providing better gas mileage and more passenger and cargo space.

14 Oct

Roomy and comfortable interior, lots of cargo space.

4 Oct

There is lots of room in the back and it's really quiet.

6 Jun

- Has lots of room in the back (in case if you needed to move stuff).

4 Apr

Drives nice, looks great (I have the lunar rock color), extremely safe and a fun adventure car!

29 Mar

Good safe car good gas mileage good power for 4 cylinders handles road well

30 Dec

Not very safe in the dark or parking garages.

3 Sep

N/A

20 Mar

highway use.. Come one weekend, the car is sitting in the garage with a dead battery, unable to start or power on any electronics.. Toyota has a TSB pointing to updating the software of the DCM module.

6 Dec

but something is draining the battery.

27 Nov

The gas tank issues and dying battery issues are really serious lapses on the part of Toyota.

31 Oct

N/A

27 Oct

The vehicle has left my wife stranded twice when it would not start due to a dead battery.

16 Oct

Battery dead after not driving for 10 hour work shift.

13 Oct

Called dealer service department, Ben told me they just found out about a software upgrade last week that is supposed to stop the battery drain.

5 Oct

Battery was dead today after not driving it for 1 day.

26 Sep

Battery died after 6 months.

25 Sep

Mine is an XLE, had it for only a month and battery has died twice.

10 Jul

Cons: Fuel tank issue is annoying.

11 Mar

The fuel tank only fills 3/4 of the way.

22 Feb

I can only get about 9 to 10 gallons max into the gas tank when empty and Toyota won't do anything about it.

12 Jan

I have owned this car for a year and weeks after buying it learned that I could not fill the 14.5 gallon tank as there is a design failure with the gas tank sensor.

27 Nov

The gas tank issues and dying battery issues are really serious lapses on the part of Toyota.

25 Sep

The bad: Don't Toyota's PR campaign fool you the gas tank design is seriously flawed and has not been fixed in the 18 months this vehicle has been on the market.

7 Sep

Probably, the only difference between the 2019 and 2020 defective fuel tank models is that the fuel level indicator is capable of showing a full tank

6 Sep

I am giving this a one star because I think it is underhanded and possibly illegal to have a known defect (gas tank/performance) and sell these cars without fixing it or disclosing it.

5 Sep

Only issue is the gas tank.

4 Sep

However, they gas tank only fills up 10 gallons which is much less than the manufacture states it should fill resulting in less total mileage.

15 Aug

Also, to many rattle noises.

11 Jul

The only downside is that the vehicle sounds at all times like multiple pieces are loose on the interior… there are rattles in the cabin from every direction that cannot seem to be found or fixed.

20 Mar

The car has a lot of wind related noise at highway speeds and fabric seats are not comfortable.

22 Feb

Also, this thing is noisy.

10 Jan

Bought this Prime XSE right off showroom floor with a substantial premium (dealer mark up) and on the first drive almost returned it, reasons: rattles and noises caused by road imperfections.

30 Dec

Only other issue is a fan noise when the heater starts up.

8 Dec

Car is a little noise inside, Seats are a little uncomfortable for long ride.

27 Nov

The random noises and poor seat comfort are just plain aggravating and long term irritants.

10 Nov

The only thing I do not like are the noises at any time

5 Nov

Excessive loud noise when in reverse.

8 Jul

There are some things to improve like a full-digital instrument cluster, a tachometer (hybrid), oil temp and voltage readings, hood-opening hydraulic struts, illuminated windows and mirror

30 Dec

Only other issue is a fan noise when the heater starts up.

6 Dec

All the lights, radio, defroster everything is turned off before we shut the car off,

24 Jul

N/A

13 May

(AC amplifier bad due to driver seat heater).

4 Mar

The loss in efficiency I have seen is when I have to accelerate hard at traffic lights or when the car is used for very short drives and the engine has to heat up lowering mileage (especially in freezing temperature).

30 Dec

There are no side mirror defrosters and the dash defrost that has a vent aimed toward the side window is useless for defrosting the driver side window - it blows toward it

14 Aug

So far the only disappointments are the inside air vents could be bigger for better air flow, and they need to fix their act up re color choices and options which vary dramatically from model to model.

12 Jan

I have owned this car for a year and weeks after buying it learned that I could not fill the 14.5 gallon tank as there is a design failure with the gas tank sensor.

17 Nov

Guess Toyota is going down hill - new Rav4 and the auto headlights stopped working and needed to be replaced then the drivers door lock failed and needed to be replaced.

23 Sep

Had the vehicle for 2 weeks now, drove mostly in city and gave rest for 1 day, the car won’t start, it says smart key malfunction, I changed the key fob battery and still the same issue, felt crazy it happened on the brand new car.

28 Jul

but has no fix or plans to recall, sounds like they don’t have any intention of coming up with a fix for it.

7 Jul

but it was showing a “key malfunction” error and telling me to press the break and turn on the car.

4 Jun

You need to recall these vehicles and fix problems.

20 Jan

While driving on the highway in a light snow storm all of the sensors failed due to being covered in snow- the exact safety features we liked because of being safer in Minnesota weather.

15 Mar

It fits our family nicely,

24 Feb

Solid in all weather that any family would typically encounter.

21 Jan

Boy do I miss my Acadia.

1 Sep

We take road trips regularly as a family of 5 with dogs so the interior room is great.

13 Jun

It’s a good grocery getter

11 May

They have a cargo management system with a felted carpet in the trunk space that has 4 velcro-bottomed right angled blocks to create an area to contain groceries or what ever you want to keep secure.

3 Feb

But it’s very roomy, does take my dogs and kid at same time

24 Jan

My kids love staring out through the roof window.

14 Dec

if you have 3 or more kids, buy the very base model of this and take it to Car Toys or someone to provide electronics and convenience add ons .

10 Dec

but I have a big extended family that likes to travel in to visit, which is why I like having a 3 row SUV.

1 Aug

So far ( 29000 miles ), its been reliable, comfortable and great cargo space.

16 Jul

Great big vehicle a lot of room for people on road trips.

5 Jul

Comfortable on trips carrying 4-5 people, great cargo space.

29 Jun

Room for 7 adults, or lots of cargo room.

8 May

If you need space like we do, this is the car for you!!

24 Feb

And soooo much more usable space.

21 Jan

Plenty of leg room and head space in all three rows and generally pretty comfortable.

1 Sep

We take road trips regularly as a family of 5 with dogs so the interior room is great.

13 Jun

But this car still has great pick up, incredibly room and comfortable.

11 May

The huge difference for me was that the 2019 , while not as sporty as the Atlas Cross Sport, it has tons of room, a 6 year, 72k warranty and I really liked the headlights, overall muscular look, and that

31 Mar

Whether I'm in the vehicle or away, I feel my vehicle and my things in it will be safe and secure.

21 Jan

They had to replace the engine control module and a fuel level sensor.

13 Sep

Bad news is the distance on a tank of gas.

16 Jul

The only negative was it had the least sporty engine feel compared to the above listed vehicles and it drinks gas like a thirsty German drinks beer

3 Feb

But if your looking at this car I’ll say this.. not speedy, gas mileage is terrible I get around 270 miles a tank full maybe 290 at times.

14 Dec

It wasn't enough they tried to cheat our regulatory system previously on gas milegae.

3 May

love this suv the only think I hate is the on off gas saving

7 Apr

N/A

29 Jun

only to find that EVERY TIME I FILLED UP, THE FUEL DOOR FELL OFF!!

10 Mar

The downsides are poor fuel economy and low on the HP(HorsePower).

18 Nov

Very noisy and rattles in multiple places.

13 Sep

We also noticed a noise when turning sharply - which seems to have disappeared with the latest SW update.

5 Feb

button start due to inconsistent starting 5: torque converter makes terrible loud grinding noise in low gears.

29 Jun

I go to the front of the Atlas and the noise is SO loud!

15 Apr

Both Q7 and Atlas are super quiet inside, with no engine noise.

13 Feb

front end noise that the dealer cant figure out.

21 Jan

They had to replace the engine control module and a fuel level sensor.

16 Jul

The only negative was it had the least sporty engine feel compared to the above listed vehicles and it drinks gas like a thirsty German drinks beer

19 Feb

and settled on a 2019 2.0 Liter SE w/Technology.

5 Feb

Well, the dealer just tore the entire engine apart and replaced every seal and the head gasket based on a scope of the engine and finding coolant leaking internally into the cylinders.

30 Jan

I DO NOT LIKE THE MOTOR SHUT DOWN AT STOP LIGHTS !

7 Apr

(And believe me when I say these things are pretty minor in the grand scheme of things…) The biggest gripe I have is the engine power.

29 Jun

but no check engine light so the service tech tells me it should be fine.

15 Apr

Both Q7 and Atlas are super quiet inside, with no engine noise.

8 Sep

A few days after purchasing we had to take it back because of malfunctioning rear traffic and blind spot alerts.

7 Apr

The rest of the cons are really only small things: the blind spot warning only gives a visual cue in the side mirror,

10 Mar

N/A

13 Sep

Bad news is the distance on a tank of gas.

11 May

Mostly tiny gripes like the tank is small especially since it gets the worst MPG of it's class, the autostart system doesn't work well and you have to disable it each and everytime you start the vehicle.

3 Feb

But if your looking at this car I’ll say this.. not speedy, gas mileage is terrible I get around 270 miles a tank full maybe 290 at times.

14 Feb

A GTI with similar features costs much more - and let's face it - looks like a car for teens.

17 Nov

The Golf Sportwagen 4 Motion is as adapt at hauling the family around town as it is on going on adventures.

14 Feb

My daughter leases a 2018 VW Tiguan S and, like her, I find the S trim to be more than sufficient on this car.

6 Feb

but nothing really serious, I will recommend this car to my friends and family, and definitely I am buying another one next year for my Son.

8 Jan

I will definitely recommend Volkswagen Jetta to my friends and family, it’s a luxury car at a very reasonable price.

7 Mar

Huge truck space.

28 Mar

but it has more room where I needed it in the back seat and trunk.

3 Mar

The ride is adequate given the price point, and there is plenty of interior space for my wife and teenage child.

14 Feb

It packs the punch you need to pass a slow driver on a 2 lane road where space is limited, it's comfortable to drive, it handles great.

1 Jan

Was looking for decent economy and room, also the tdi made me a torque addict (for which there is no cure).

17 Nov

Consider the VW Golf Sport Wagon if you enjoy the driving experience of a manual transmission (which is almost extinct) with sport car like handling and cargo room.

9 Feb

It also has a massive trunk space with more cargo room than the mid size SUV I traded in for the Jetta.

5 Feb

Safe, Reliable, Fun to drive!

18 May

This vehicle feels very safe, great features, great looking, very comfortable.

19 Mar

If you just want a nice looking new vehicle that can get you from A-B safe and efficiently for 6-10 years, I would recommend the VW.

14 Feb

I felt very safe and comfortable throughout.

22 Apr

ORIGINAL BRAKES SQUEAK WHEN MOIST DEALER SAID NORMAL ITS NOT NORMAL.

7 Mar

And… the “Lane Assist,” only warns you if you go off lane by vibrating the steering wheel or stiffen up the steering wheel if try to change lanes without using your turn signal.

12 Sep

Transmission issues, and noisy engine.

1 Jan

The drivers seat squeaks a bit and there is a rattle somewhere behind the glove box, which I will let my service department know about at the first oil change.

23 Mar

Some times they squeak when the temperatures are cold.

Noise level during driving on a highways is very acceptable, it’s not completely isolated

14 Feb

The GTI (and Golf in general) also has more compartments for storage. For some reason VW decided to get rid of the 6-way adjustable passenger seat (which was present in my 2017 GLI - and was even in my 1994 Jetta!)

The passenger seat should be afforded the same amount of adjustments as the driver seat.

16 Sep

The Jetta is a small, entry level car - not a luxury vehicle.

12 May

The intercooler is too small for the high demand of the engine if the driver like myself is a car enthusiast and on the weekend wants to drive the car like the performance car it is.

14 Feb

Similarly, while the WRX might pack more punch, the trunk is small and it just looks unprofessional.

11 Nov

Agree that the tires should have been “sportier”.

12 May

The problem is that the tire from Hankook says they should last 45,000 miles with proper rotations and proper tire pressure maintained.

My only gripe is the stock falken tires, I live in WA and traction in the rain is garbage.

but for the 2 of us and our 3 dogs (and their crates) it meets our needs and then some.

9 May

If you want a power lifting tailgate you can wave your foot under with your arms full of groceries, nope.

24 Dec

The Lexus GX460 is a rare find these days with a body on frame truck instead of the car like crossover soccer moms cars.

18 Dec

but it’s the perfect commuter, grocery getter, carpool suv, vacation suv, off rd suv.

3 Mar

Great for my family of 5.

28 Jan

There is no comparison, the 4Runner is a dog in the mountains and the interior is very truck like.

15 Sep

This is our family weekend car and my wifes daily and she liked the high seating position and the interior quality of the GX better.

14 Jul

This luxury SUV is a go anywhere, kid hauling, reliable champ.

9 Mar

I like the GX because it give me extra room for the grandchildren's carseats and I like the handling with snow this past winter.

12 Nov

No complaints from the family.

9 May

If you want max cargo space for the class, also nope--my '05 Pilot won hands-down in that department.

26 Jan

I seriously feel so safe driving this vehicle around.

11 Dec

You feel completely safe in this vehicle.

19 Nov

I feel safe and am confident in it's reliability.

22 Dec

There is a constant squeak when I press on the break pedal that Lexus claims they can’t do anything about.

19 Nov

Also, I have replaced normal maintenance items: the battery, wipers, tires and the brakes.

13 Mar

If you want remote start you have to have a smart phone and pay $8 a month.

20 Feb

A $70k SUV that has 10 year old infotaiment system, horrible quality cameras, no Apple Car play, no Android connectivity -

14 Nov

I read review after review telling us how out dated the SUV is, it doesn't have apple play or android music, it doesn't get great gas mileage, its expensive and it's just old.

22 Dec

The auto start function is only by phone app and not on your key and it rarely works.

12 Nov

The newer models will have android and apple car play so that fixes this issue.

21 Jun

As for road noise, I don’t have it.

13 Mar

When driving I hear road noise that makes me think the window is open

22 Dec

There is a constant squeak when I press on the break pedal that Lexus claims they can’t do anything about.

13 Feb

great all around family vehicle.

18 Jan

Plenty of room for our luggage and dogs.

18 Aug

The front cabin and the back seats are roomy, the cargo space is huge and the infotainment system worked well.

3 Jul

Cargo space and rear legroom is best among the three I test drove(CX-5, CR-V, Forester).

23 Dec

Honda are masters of using the space is a tremendous way.

19 Jun

For a small SUV it has all the room of a much larger one without the size of a big car.

18 Apr

Great interior space, entry and exit are a breeze, a LOT of car/ crossover for the $$ Gas mileage has been 36-37 mpg combined highway and around town, and I do suspect it will go up 1 or 2 mpg as it "breaks in" What else can I say?

13 Apr

This CR-V sure beats the Jeep we traded.. Lots of room ,nice ride & great on gas.

3 Feb

Has lots of room, the seats and interior are very comfortable, it has a good height and gives you a good view of outside.

17 Dec

I do my own oil changes every 7500 with synthetic ow 20 the 2019 has a lot more room and is wider than the 14 rides better very agile and easy to get in and out of.

22 Nov

When looking, I needed good ground clearance due to camping, good cargo space, and good fuel economy.

2 Apr

Car has a lot of road noise.

3 Feb

I would improve the noise of the engine especially when driving on a quiet road, the turbo is said to make a high pitch hum that can be annoying to hear constantly.

2 Aug

The only negative is the engine noise when you initially accelerate - wish Honda would have insulated the engine compartment and firewall.

18 Aug

The transmission "growls" a bit upon acceleration

30 Mar

The transmission slips when you approach a light or slow the vehicle down.

19 Feb

Already in the service department for electrical glitches and the transmission gas hard shift.

I have snow tires and feel I can go out even in terrible blizzard conditions.

23 Jul

Very noisy engine, sluggish and very uncomfortable.

24 May

That means the engine turns off (to save the ozone I guess) whenever you come to a full stop.

27 Jan

-The oil dilution issue has caused my engine to stall even after they did the temporary software fix.

12 Jan

Small gasoline leak is getting into the oil inside the engine.

It's a manufacturer defective internal issue inside the motor.

If you like a used one that has this motor (2017-on) be sure to research THAT particular car's maintenance records for motor issues.

15 Sep

There is a possible oil dilution problem on this engine & Honda has no real fix.

Overall, I’ve totaled 12,000 miles, 3 out of state trips, and have driven many of my friends and family in this car, and these times are irreplaceable.

8 May

But for us, this is a family car so comfort is THE priority.

16 Sep

I have just enough room.

3 Jul

It is a comfortable and powerful highway cruiser with good room for the sector it is in.

27 Nov

Enough room and more options to use than a more expensive car.

3 Jan

The seats are the highest grade of comfort, and the trunk provides much room as well as a large rear window for visibility.

18 Jun

The car is heavy and solid and I feel extremely safe in it.

16 Dec

Despite those two complaints, our XC60 has been rock solid reliable and feels very safe.

3 Jan

It lives up to its reputation of being Safe, Reliable, and Stylish (it turns heads!).

18 Jun

I do worry about long-term reliability in that I have had the car in for the check engine light a number of times and both toe kicks fell off within the first three months and had to be replaced.

6 Apr

I could not ask for a better car/SUV, while only a four cylinder engine the car has unexpected quickness and it is quite fast.

16 Sep

Just the facts: Pro: Engine/trans combo are powerful, quick to accelerate when needed.

27 Aug

The 13 mile electric range is too low to be useful and the raspy 4 cylinder engine provides unrefined power/acceleration.

3 Jul

A comment I would add is that the engine has a rather unique sound when it is just fired up.

I finally decided to sell when the engine developed a shudder >50mph at just over 19,000 miles.

12 Feb

although a bit firm; throaty engine sound; smooth and quick acceleration; transmission shifts are barely noticeable and correctly timed to pedal input (true over drive is appreciated); seats are very supportive; info system a bit complicated at first.

14 Sep

but the autonomous driving breaks down if there is more than a slight curve, the electric motor will only get you about 15 miles in town, and the gas mileage once gone is only 26mpg.

9 Jun

The vehicle has been back to the dealer 5 times in the first 6 months with the check engine light coming on in addition to other problems.

25 Oct

Turn on your engine, Get comfortable in your seat, fasten your seat belts, adjust the mirrors, find the music or sports station you want on the radio, hit the kill switch for the stop start engine and the infotainment system is up and running.

27 Aug

The front dashboard rattles miserably on the highway.

3 Jul

My only complaint is that road noise is a little higher than ideal.

14 Jan

Second, the mirror vibrates, the dashboard rattles, there is trim that is misaligned on the body, the rotors are already rusting and the front end vibrates.

14 Oct

Driver seat and passenger seat squeak when driving over every bump in the road.

20 Sep

The windows rattle when up or partially down.

16 Dec

While there is a slight amount of hesitation from a stop, once the turbo spools up the XC60 accelerates easily.

8 Oct

but didn't get is; A bit firmer ride A bit more acceleration in all modes I have no complaints and can recommend this car to anyone.

16 Sep

Just the facts: Pro: Engine/trans combo are powerful, quick to accelerate when needed.

27 Aug

The 13 mile electric range is too low to be useful and the raspy 4 cylinder engine provides unrefined power/acceleration.

Just amazing fit & finish, great steering, ride, brakes, and fancy features keeping the kids wowing.

The Black / New Saddle Interior is Luxury SUV Quality, my family appreciates that more than I do.

8 May

My other SUV doesn’t ride as smooth as this truck and it’s more versatile than my SUV (space, storage, configuration and hauling).

Have Crew Cab that has tons of room in the back, Tows boat with ease - have 3.92 rear and trailer brake controller.

Ram box is very handy lots of storage space.

The crew cab's back seat is bigger than the couch in my living room.

Cabin space is now amazing and finding a place to store all of your stuff is easy.

I have had this truck in the shop so many times, I think they should have paid a portion of with my monthly truck payments.

20 Dec

Lemon Laws have a limit of the purchase price, unless, they knew of the issue before you bought it, then there is no limit, and I guess that's where we are going next.

18 Dec

you can not buy a gas cap for this truck .

11 Sep

If you buy a Ram, DON'T BUY A LIMITED.! !

24 May

GM was not discounting hardly at all so the dealers were bring the price down on there side..Ford F-150’s interior was well just cheap looking with the small screen and hardly had no center storage because the shifter was there,not like the Ram 1500 had.

29 Mar

but I personally feel like at this price RAM should have delivered us something better.

13 Jun

The ONLY negative about this truck is the turning radius.

28 Dec

Various systems turn themselves off for no reason.

20 Dec

To do this on this $64,000 Ram, you have to manually shut it off and turn it back on when the vehicle warms up.

11 Sep

but driving down the road with the rear view camera on (and won't turn off) is terribly distracting.

10 Jun

However, this latest full tank (26 Gallons) seems to be getting better Milage after: 1.

28 Jan

My only complaint is gas mileage around town (city driving).

6 Dec

15 miles per gallon in a 2020 vehicle is terrible!

2 Sep

Only the gas mileage is poor around town not on the highway.

13 May

My only fault is the gas mileage.

The interior is unquestionably better than any other half ton and my only complaint is fuel economy

My family bought a 2020 Forester Sport about a year ago and we love it.

30 Jul

I would be scared to drive with family and gear in car going uphill on windy roads at altitude in mountains.

24 Jun

Lots of space for passengers, the dog, and camping gear.

3 Aug

Boy were we amazed at all the hi tech this ride has to offer.

26 Jul

Now we are stuck with the most unliked vehicle our family has ever owned, literally.

15 Jul

Inside, the Forester is well-built, and it has plenty of room for passengers and cargo.

6 Jun

Love the space, open and expansive cabin, 4wd and driving character.

27 Mar

Our 2020 Subaru Forrester so far has been amazing in comfort, ride, design, engineering, looks, and space.

18 Dec

PROS: +Massive amount of front row shoulder room and head space in both driver and passenger positions +Doors open very wide so great for loading car seats/gear/ or a 70" tv, literally.

28 Aug

Driver’s that city drive and want safety, space and comfort might look more to the CRV and Rav 4.

24 Jun

Lots of space for passengers, the dog, and camping gear.

9 Feb

Driver and passenger room beats much larger SUVs.

15 Mar

COMFORT, SAFETY, HIGH TECHNOLOGY, EXCELLENT MPG, SPACE, EASY TO DRIVE .

17 Jan

Styling is modern without all the swoopy curves that serve no useful purpose other than for style and a reduction in interior space.

4 Jan

but it is attractive, interior room is great for a car this size, ride is as good as any I evaluated, and better than most.

7 Apr

I feel very safe in this car. .

6 Nov

The EyeSight makes us feel entirely safe with our family, and the reliability of this car is outstanding.

28 Aug

If you are going to drive in town and a reasonable safe driver not in need of bail out or don’t want road rage acceleration you will still love the safety features in the impact design and technology for avoiding collisions.

6 Jun

Let down by rattles.. right door rattles and there are buzzes near the S pillar and headliner.

18 Dec

Lincolns don't have this included even and you only care when you need it so this is piece of mind +Minimal cabin noise during highway driving, excess of 75 or really windy you can experience some wind noise

30 Jul

With just me in car it feels underpowered and strained to accelerate - for $28k plus I’m shocked at the cabin noise.

11 Mar

Engine noise is not up to other suv choices, wind noise unacceptable at speeds over 50 mph.

26 Jul

If that isn't enough the EYESIGHT and myriad other "safety" features will bark, whine, whistle, scream, and rattle your nerves to death literally every trip.

8 Oct

I also do not like the fact that you cannot permanently disable the engine stop/start feature,

28 Aug

The 2010 I put 183,000 miles on before getting hit in the rear and totaling it was an absolute blast to drive the engine was small

30 Jul

Good resale value (which is good b/c I’m dumping this car in near future due to below reasons) Cons: - engine is underpowered.

24 Jun

I do like the engine turning off during stop lights, or traffic jams.

25 Apr

The only things I’d change on this vehicle are the windshield which is prone to cracks/chips more than most cars and a stronger engine or add a turbo for towing/acceleration (but goodbye great MPG).

11 Mar

Engine noise is not up to other suv choices, wind noise unacceptable at speeds over 50 mph.

21 Nov

It took 4 trips to the dealer and a call to Subaru of America in New Jersey to there Tech center to discover that it was a random problem, and they had just found out what was causing it, now i had 2 new motors put in already.

26 Jul

As the Pro Reviewer here wrote; the auto start/stop feature is akin to a drunkard who cannot decide which bar to enter next, it is just constantly confused about its own job, engine on or off.

USB ports and outlets and heated seats or air cooled seats and big screens in the head rest and space, so much freaking space!

24 Apr

Compared to our 2018 Honda exl odyssey we believe this feels like it has much more room and is a smoother ride .

24 Apr

Features I liked most was a deep Cargo space behind 3rd row, easy access and that Table in the second row.

22 Apr

Only real compliant is the design and placement of the entertainment screens, which takes up some aisle space and almost interferes with the function of the seats sliding forward.

17 Apr

The front could have more storage space

15 Aug

- The rear bumper could have been made an inch wider to allow for safe stepping onto when we need to reach for the rooftop cargos.

You cannot fit more than 4 or 5 grocery bags in the back unless you fold the rear set down.

That has actually happened quite often: restaurants, grocery store, gas stations etc.

Very little trunk space and leg room for back seat passengers.

Great for shopping lots of room in back with or without the back seats down.

They also frequently complement the smoothness of the ride, and there's plenty of room in the back passenger seats.

Interior room is very impressive for one so small.

In conclusion the Kona EV still has some room for improvement
