I'ts great- It's perfect for my needs. I can put two mountain bikes in the back upright without taking the front wheels off and bungie them to the seat anchor bars (where the seats attach when they fold up) In winter I just throw the whole quiver, or whatever I'm taking that day in the back with all the gear and no worries. I only got the rack in case I had passengers. The tailgate is perfect for putting on boots. It's 4wd and has high ground clearence- the big tires make it a tractor in the snow and it's a Honda- so you know it's dependable. The plastic quarter panels cost $52 each- something I found out when I got rear-ended last year.
It's not as good a highway car as a Subaru (or a BMW) but that's not it's function. Not that it's bad- we have a lot of hairpin turns here and it's high profile, so you have pay attention. Driving wise, the stick version is probably more fun, but I got the practical auto. I've had lot of Subarus's and they're more fun to drive in the mountains but don't have the funtionality- ever try sitting on the back of an Outback putting on your boots in a blizzard? This thing you can suit up inside,pretty much. And my Subarus never had enough gear room, dog room etc. This you can practically hose out- in fact I did when my daughter barfed in it.
We have two orange ones in PC that I know of but I'm seeing more all the time.
It's got a 160hp motor- if I'd change anything, it would be more horsepower and a stick.
