I hesitated to write a review for fear of jinxing myself but my EXP has been a great truck. Bought new in late '97. Now has 112k on it. Other than routine maintenance and replacing a few seals here and there, nothing major has gone wrong. I love loading up the family in it, putting big dogs in the back and heading out on a road trip, confidently. The biggest improvement I made was to put Michelin LTXs on it. The stock Goodyears were junk. It's a totally different ride with the Michelins.
Size, reliability, comfort, stereo, looks. Best car I've ever had. Don't want to trade it ever.
Gas mileage. 13-14 mpg is tough to handle at the pumps. More hp. I don't like the fact that the truck has to downshift constantly on a hilly interstate. This shouldn't be an issue at 75 mph.
