great utility, lousy on bumps

Most people complain about the mileage,
but I get between 14 and 17 miles per
gallon (much better than Ford or
Chrysler in comparable models). The
engine is a dream. Cargo space and
people hauling is tremendous, but the
fun factor is terrible. The jolts I
get going over bumps is alarming, but
the dealer says everyone with large
SUV's and trucks get the same. My burb
feels like it's falling apart going
over rough terrain, I can't imaging
others feel the same thing.
It hauls a ton and I can seat 9 with
space behind the back bench. Gas
mileage is acceptable.
Rough ride over bumps is bad.
Suspension is questionable.
