Very fun to drive. For a truck, it has averaged about 16.5 MPG, which is not bad. I tow a boat and a travel trailer at times. It has been in the shop three times, twice with transmission problems, at the dealer a week each time, other time was a computer problem. I have had major tire problems, none of the orginal tires are on the vehicle, I have had it 14 months now.
XM Radio is awesome! I got the sun and sound package, off road package and the everything else package. It is loaded.
I do not know how many other people are having transmission problems, but it has been the worst problem with mine. I would have liked a sportier dash package but took care of it with aftermarket parts.
