"Base model, RWD, great snow traction--never had a problem driving on snow or getting out of a snowed-in parking space. However, the vehicle does not handle well in sudden stop situations or on wet roads. Inexpensive to maintain, lots of storage room and head room for such a small SUV. Downside: Gas mileage could be better,--only 20 mpg, cheap plastic interior components--cupholder, visor attachment clips, interior and exterior door handles, center console box lid and hinges. Cupholder blocks view of the clock and it's in front of the heater vents. Overall, though, a nice SUV for a single person. I had mine for almost 17 years, 97K miles."
