ReviewI purchased this former short-term rental vehicle with 13k miles on it in Dec '06. Now with 65k miles on it, the only thing that has malfunctioned was a headlight relay, quickly replaced under warranty. It's dead reliable, smooth, comfortable, great in snow and good at towing a 4k lbs, 26ft sailboat. Milage average is 19 mpg with mostly highway driving. Quality of materials and assembly is very high - the leather upholstery is actually better than that in my '04 Mercedes.
Best Features4.2 inline six is exceptionally smooth. Front seats are very nice.
Worst FeaturesImprove the hydraulic struts for the liftgate - they're kind of weak. Suspension is very soft which makes for a floaty ride and limits optimal cruising speed to 70-75mph.
