Bought this 6 cylinder SUV in '99 with 43k miles and currently has 135k miles on it. Hadn't had ANY major problems with it until now -- transmission needs a rebuild as I write this. But primarily have just done routine basic maintenance and it has served well. It still runs well -- no engine noise, leaks, etc. but the 2nd gear is shot. Still looks good and am hoping that after repair this vehicle will continue to serve me well for as many years as I can get out of it. Good value for the money.
6-disc changer with JBL system, dual power seats, console notification system (i.e. change oil), nice leather seats, numbered key-entry on the driver's door (locked-up keys a few times -- no problem).
KNOWN TRANSMISSION PROBLEMS needs improvement! Needs higher profile with larger tires.
