I first purchased a new Ford explorer with 3rd seat and it was a disaster from the begining, I traded it in for a much safer and sturdier car, my Tahoe! After that my brother and his wife got one as well!
I highly recommend this vehicle. The performance is outstanding and the vehicle is extremely comfortable. We bought a Honda Pilot as a second car and it fell way short of the Tahoe. The gas mileage isn't great, but no one should really expect great gas mileage from a vehicle of this size.
Very comfortable vehicle and the fact that it has never had a breakdown or needed repair other than routine maintenance.
The adjustable side supports on the front seats can be a little annoying. Also, the arm rests need to be a little higher or should be made to adjust higher for us taller folks.
I'd been shopping for a new truck with
my Jimmy lease about to expire when I
ran across this one. Purchased GM
Certified Used with only 16,000 miles
on it. It has never been in for
anything other than routine maintenance
and I'd recommend this truck to
anyone. Never tried any serious
offroading in it, but it more than
handles the harsh Michigan winters!
