Overall, I have enjoyed this vehicle.
(At 45k now). Have owned 3 prior cars.
1st SUV, 1st lease. Comfortable
seating, good ride for SUV. Good view
up front, some blindspot problems in
rear as 2 door version. Hit from pass.
side ($12,000 of damage)-walked away no
problem (don't know about front crash
test firsthand, though). Only
problems: O2 sensor on day 1 -
dealership took care of rapidly, new
alternator - but this was from accident
(cracked), battery, and lumbar support
on both sides.
plenty of easy to read gauges,interior
comfort, great pickup/power with the
4.3L engine, smooth ride, responsive
brakes, plenty of well-placed
Jounce/sways over speed bumps if going
slow. Extra 12V outlet would have been
nice. Handle for passenger seat to move
forward hard to use, seems bacward
(pull bacward to push seat forward)I
put Xenon bulbs for headlights ->
better view of road.
