We rented this for basically a one-day trip to deliver Zander to Warren Wilson College for his junior year. Unfortunately I didn't think to take a photo.

Overall, we were pretty happy with it. I'm making notes about 6 weeks after the actual rental, else I would probably have more to say.

Ignition is press-to-start.

Plusses

  • Both rows of passenger seats can be easily folded down into the floor to make cargo space.
  • 12v cig-lighter outlet in the back -- this was useful for our powered cooler.
    • The power to this outlet stayed on even when the ignition was off, which was also nice. (Hopefully power is cut if the battery starts to get low?)
  • Media center has a USB-media socket (apparently this is standard now). It was able to play FLAC files.
  • Dual cig-lighter outlets and dual USB-power outlets in dashboard
  • Control center UI was well designed.
  • key fob has control for opening/closing rear hatch
  • rear-view camera when in reverse
  • GPS was easy to use / intuitive
  • front speakers located high up in door, for clearer audio

Minuses

  • One of the cig-lighter outlets was dead. I replaced the blown fuse, but it just blew again, so apparently there was a short somewhere. Not clear if this reflects a car design/quality problem or just a maintenance issue.
