Review

I have owned many vehicles, including ultra-luxury models, and this is the most reliable, most comfortable vehicle I have ever owned. I purchased it from the dealer with 15000 miles on it and the only problem it has ever had was the adjustment switch for the driver side o/s mirror failed and was replaced under warranty. The 4.0 engine has enough power for any situation and gets reasonable economy for its size. Handling is superb. My next vehicle will probably be a Ford SUV, as I will be needing a little more room.


Best Features

Handling, appearance, comfort.


Worst Features

Visibility could be improved with a slightly narrower door post and larger rear window. Newer models have corrected the difficulty with entry to the jump seat area by adding two rear- hinged rear doors.
