Review

Alot of options for the money.The 4.0 SOHC motor has plenty of horsepower.Beware of the timing chain tensioner problems and intake manifold gasket problem,though.Recall on these will fix it,but warranty runs out 7 yr/84000 miles.I have had no major problems with this vehicle.Only problems so far were two thermostats and front end alignment.It could use some shocks.All in all I'm satisfied with this SUV.

Best Features

Mucho horsepower and plenty of options.

Worst Features

Needs better sound system , shocks , and front end work.Body roll is a problem , but so do most SUV's .
