Great price on the truck for the year and mileage

The only thing about this truck that I l liked,.....the color of the truck! The truck has no power, the availability and ease of interior accessories were not convent or accessible. truck has no up or down to the seats. Someone short can not adjust the seating. For a 2017 that should have been available.


  • Value: Price was good for the year and mileage.


  • Seat Comfort: Non adjustable, only front or back positioning, no up or down.
  • Styling: The cup holders were on the floor board. This not great win you have to look to find the cup holders bad design.
  • Cost to Maintain: For a 2017 and no spare tire, no pick up in take off, you would think you would get better gas mileage. I had a 2003 Jeep liberty and the gas mileage was the same. The 2003 jeep liberty had pick up and the interior had easy access to everything in the front cabin of the truck. The design of the Jeep liberty was great!

good car - poor service from CARMAX to deliver

recently I drove to Florida, and since it's hot in here I tried to use the cooling unit. It does not work. I have used the heating unit and that works. I didn't notice this due to living in KY, but FL is hot these days (3 months after my purchase) and I cannot use the car's cooling system.


  • Fuel Economy: Fue economy is good
  • Reliability:


  • Weather Versatility: CARMAX didn't deliver a car with working Cooling Unit, Broken since the beginning, would not cover the expenses

love it... (small (L) though...)

Nice vehicle. Very comfortable driving position. Seat is comfortable, wide front windshield, dash controls are well arranged, quiet ride (on good pavement), with rear 60/40 seat backs folded down - good cargo room, high ceiling clearance, good looking little suv, okay mileage 27 +/- mpg on the highway (but small gas tank (13.5 gal) still has you at the pump bi-weekly, CVT tranny takes some getting used to - but once you do it's a good thing (I think). Bottom line - I'd buy again.
