Since I purchased this SUV in March of '06 I really have enjoyed owning it. Yeah the gas mileage in city driving is horrendous (12mpg going easy on the gas pedal and the brakes), but you can't really expect much more from a 275 HP 6 cylinder. Gets about 17 on the highway. I really like the the comfort of this vehicle. Lots of room, great ride, and very quiet. It looks really nice as well. The power is also more than I expected it was going to be. Passing isn't a problem. Overall a really sound SUV.
Power. Looks, comfort and very little road noise.
Gas mileage! And also sometimes if I hit a bump just right the automatic 4wd sensing unit will kick in and I'll have to stop and reset it. Kind of a pain.
