Wow, and I thought I was the only person who absolutely hates this SUV! Single mom trying to make it and this suv keeps putting me further in the whole. When my transmission went out the repair shop told me they replace at least two or more of these models of transmissions every week. They recommend that you buy a new transmission and have it rebuilt. Yeah $1500.00 and 1 1/2 years later the transmission is just about shot again. I have replaced almost all front end parts 2-3 times (yes, the same parts) I was told after buying it that it is a high maintenance suv. Wish someone would have told me that before I bought it...lol ABS/brake lights stay on wipers always break I could go on for days
I am so sick of replacing stuff I cant think of anything good to say.
I agree with one of the previous post BLOW IT UP...get it off the streets...Or you could recall it for all of us people who have paid for it over and over again with the parts
I bought this SUV new from the dealership in 2001. I now have 90,000 miles on it. I get around 18 MPG city and 22 highway and I love to hit the gas. The biggest problem I had, was needing new tires at 28,000 miles. Was told that it helps keep the cost down to build them. This is a great SUV and will keep it for a long time.
My wife and I love to take trips in this SUV. Very comfortable seats, smooth ride.
