At first I was a little sad about going to a Nissan from my GMC Suburban, but after driving my Nissan I LOVE IT! We pull a 28 ft travel trailer with a large pop out and you honestly forget its back there at times! Love my car! We do miss the additional cargo space! But all in all we couldn't be happier with the car and with CarMax! I would buy a car from them again!
So far it has been perfect for our family of 6. We bought one with a DVD system which has been amazing on trips, however, it didn't come with a remote and it wouldn't work without, easy fix though. It's roomy and great to drive and love that we have the 4WD option for when it starts to snow. I have so far had no complaints about this car.
Nissan does not make things intuitive. For the price of a car like this i would expect better amenities. I had a 2004 Ford Expedition that was better thought out. Possibly petty items but: steering wheel volume / station change is poorly laid out particularly for a right handed person. Poor or absent clothes hooks in back and cargo. HUGE gap in cargo area behind seat so items fall out of reach. No coin dish. Loud AC compressor. HORRIBLE gas mileage.
They’re big. They’re bold. They’re kinda in your face. Tall pickup trucks and SUVs have the kind of ride height that gets you over, through, and around the kind of rough terrain which stops other vehicles in their tracks. If you live in a place with lots of snow, mud, or uneven ground, ride height (defined as the distance between the bottom of your truck’s tires and the lowest point on the underside) is probably more important to you than road-hugging and handling characteristics and strong fuel efficiency.
Compact SUVs are great for everything from daily commutes to weekend family road trips. These small SUVs are more popular than ever with the style to match. Check out this list of CarMax’s best-selling compact SUVs of 2017, based on sales data from January 1 – July 2017.
Many drivers who want a best crossover seek out one of the popular vehicles on this list. Why the big deal about a crossover SUV? It’s the solid mix of roomy interior and a smaller size that fits in plenty of parking spaces.
