It has overall been an extremely
reliable vehicle. I live in Alaska and
I travel often 150 miles one way at a
stretch. The highway can be very lonely
in the winter months (I carry a cell
phone in case I need it, often times it
is of no use to me do to the mountains
blocking reception!) Four wheel drive
is a must here! I use it all the time
on slick roads and off road along
beaches gathering clams or along the
river here in extremely deep, soft,
sand to fish. The only negative thing I
have encountered with the vehicle was
the oil cooler hoses were leaky and I
had trouble getting one due to a nation
wide backorder issue.
It tows great! I towed a trailer-3200
lbs from Minnesota through Canada
to Alaska with no problems. Also I
towed a VW Passat 150 miles. The 4.3
towed through all the mountain hills
nicely. I like the 4x4 button. The
heater works great! The engine starts
every time in the winter months.
I always felt this vehicle was
overpriced and still do. Compare it
with a full size vehicle and its price.
Sorry, the pricing is just not
