We bought this rascal in lieu of a Suburban and in favor of Ford's one tonner. It has served us well, although the interior finish is better suited for a cheap doll house. Roadability is excellent. I am over 6'3" and not skinny and I can drive for hours in this vehicle without the usual leg cramps, etc. If you are tall and heavy, you understand. As I said, the interior lacks in quality, the carpet wore through 2 years ago, the reclining passenger seat now is a rocking chair, the door panels are impossible to keep attached with use. The engine is flawless as long as it is serviced regularly, it will let you know if you forget. The transmission is still under scrutiny.
Ride, comfort on long trips.
Air conditioning is anemic in extreme weather, Interior trim is lousy. Exterior finish(paint) not durable enough. No reason for ordinary maintenance to be so difficult.(Plugs, wires, etc.) Again Interior trim is lousy. Fuel economy is lousy, but what do you expect?
