I bought this car from my parents with 105,000 miles on it. It has been fun to drive. The major problem has been with oil leaking. I found a good mechanic who likes to work on this one. He said the engine is a really good one. It is so quiet and smooth you can hardly tell it is running when in idle at a stop light. I am selling for a newer 4x4 but will always like this car. I know it doesn't get the best reviews, but there are alot of nice features about this car. It is heavy and you feel safe and secure in it.
especially like the interior/exterior temperature guage and the heated seats. The traction control is good too.
oil leaking problems seem to recur with this model. Its cheaper to add oil than to repair. Keep a cloth under the car when you park it.
