Bought this SUV used with 80,000+ on it. I also had to replace EGR
water pump, A/C compressor. I have about 123,000 on it now. It is the
wife's main transportation with 2 kids in car seats. I have used for everything
from towing a utility trailer with 4,000 lbs.of sand, to pulling out small trees
stump and all. To pulling cut trees with a chain to the back of the property.
Have not had it stuck but have come close ( buried in mud up to the rim). It
is picky about the fuel I use. Likes BP the best, premium. Ran much better
with new plugs, wires, and K&N air filter.
4300 vortec and four wheel drive. Easy access to the kids in the back (
getting them in and out ).
