Bought in 99 with 24k and now have 154k. great vehicle with only normal maintenance until replaced ball joints recently. Great comfort and tons of space. Use as a small pickup sometimes when I need to haul something. Paint on roof though not visible from the ground has deteriorated but the rest of the paint is good especially for spending 4 years in Buffalo winters and the rest in WV.
Size, comfort and 15 mpg good for a large SUV. 4.6L OK but probably would not be a good for towing
Tougher leather seats. 17" wheels std. Have 16 and 17 looks much better.
