ReviewAWD, V8, 3.73 limited slip differential. Only 16 MPG, but it takes off like a sports car! Leak from the front differential had to be repaired twice (at no cost to me). I replaced a bad plug wire a couple weeks later. Front half-shaft seals squeal for the first couple miles in cold weather, and need to be replaced. Bent rear wiper arm. This sums all its troubles for the 2-1/2 years and 27,000 miles of my ownership. A recent ear-ended accident resulted in just a slightly dented and misadjusted bumper. Yes, it lost almost half of its trade- in value since I bought it, but who cares - it's not for sale anytime soon.
Best FeaturesReliability, plenty of low end torque, safety, good visibility, comfortable seating, good road gripping.
Worst FeaturesMore clearance to qualify for off-road driving. Better headlights and fog lights. Better brakes. More room under the hood to work on the engine. Built-in GPS. Better roof rack. Better rear wiper. Locking fuel door. Message center needs to move to the dash.
