The Orlando is a good compromise between a full blown people carrier and a normal car as the occasional 2 seats in the rear give enough room for a 2 full grown adults for most distances. Daughters boyfriend is 6ft 5in and has regularly used these seats when we have 7 in the car. The shape is different to other 7 seaters which I like, although some don't. Drive is good for this type of car and I routinely get 35mpg from it as most of my journeys are short 10 miles or less in and around town doing the normal commute to work and back, kids to and from school/clubs etc. I have adjusted my driving style to get this but most now say I'm smoother and more relaxed because of this, although it does have the get up and go to overtake or have a blast down a country road if required. Longer journeys the MPG goes up to 45+. Equipment on the LTZ I bought is great, in built sat nav is useful when going somewhere new, although I'm never going to pay the excessive fee requested for a new disk to update the maps, so it will eventually become more and more out of date. The only issue I have had was very early on when the turbo failed, but this was replaced under warranty, although it took the dealer nearly 8 weeks to get the parts. Dealer service during that period was excellent as delay was due to lack of parts from Chevrolet. Overall I and my family (wife and 3 teenage girls) love the car.
