rear brakes and parking brake leave
something to be desired. Rear rotors
rust decreasing overall braking power

towing vehicle for horse trailer.
Two piece drive shaft failed during

has proven to be reliable.
Unit stuck in 4wd during -20 degree
weather. Again dealership repaired.

failure, rattle in the steering shaft,

fan. Not much really. Basically
satisfied & hoping for a long run.
Seats in the SL are surprisingly
comfortable. Handles a trailer like a
