Very Dissapointing for $40K!

For $40K this has been a dissapointment
to say the least...even if it cost $30K
we'd be dissapointed....it's spent way
too much time in the shop and there are
still many things that the dealership
says are normal, but they sure are
annoying. We've had to have the entire
VTM (4 wheel drive system)
replaced..now the tranny is being
recalled! 2 other minor recalls as
well. Tires are shot at 30K! gas
mileage at 16/18 vs. window of
18/23...and we are easy drivers. Used
to get 16/18 out of full sized V-8
Chevy Tahoe and on regular gas!!
None at this point. It's going to get
traded soon and we'll be done with it!
Get rid of brake problems. Fix gas tank
slosh. Lit steering wheel controls. Fix
driver's seat movement/slop. Replace
cheap interior components with
materials befitting a $40K vehicle.
Make basics like body side moldings/
mud flaps std.
