Bought the truck used, had 52k on it. Comfortable ride, good looks, and compliments from a lot of people. Really like this design, the '04 and up look too square and bulky. Interior is designed well. Gas mileage is normal for a 5.9L V8 about 15-17 mpg on the highway. Disappointed that the water pump went out at 59k. Cruise control is acting up too, but nothing I can't fix. With gas prices soaring and seeming to never quit, will consider a crossover for a next SUV, no reason to have a V8 powered SUV, don't do any towing and the it's the wife's daily driver.
Interior is designed well. Rear air conditioning and heat has come in handy for rear passengers. Third row seat has come in handy when extra people need a ride or if you're driving the kids and their friends around.
250hp is not enough, though torque is good. Should have had the 5.7L Hemi in it. Could also find a couple more MPGs to squeeze out of the engine. Better plastics on the interior, seems a little too econocar.
