Never owned a vehicle I liked so well

ReviewI have four teenage sons and sometimes
tow a 5000lb boat. I bought the diesel
for fuel economy -- getting 16-22mph.
It took a short while to get used
driving this large vehicle, but now I
LOVE driving this car. Trips are a joy
with the entertainment package. NO new
car "little problems" (yet, at 3500
miles). I tend to buy new cars and keep
them for 10 years. I believe I made a
very good choice for the next 10. Also
very impressed with how solidly this
vehicle seems to be built, inside and
out. Paid a LOT, for this kind of
comfort/utility for next 10 years I
don't regret a cent. 4 wheel drive gets
me up/down drive I haven't used in years.
Best FeaturesComfort -- leather seats are a you. My 75 yr old mother (bad back, legs) loves the car. Even though the seats are high, running boards and handles make it no problem to get in/out (even for my mother). Kids love DVD when we travel.
Worst FeaturesI beleive I made the right choice with the diesel engine. Fuel economy is excellent (imho) for a vehicle this size. I just wish I could get it to be a bit quieter. Inside is no problem, but it is undeniably a diesel when you're standing next to it.
