I've owned this car for 2.5 years and I've not had one problem with it and I'm up to 50k miles. The drive is smooth and comfortable. Its got great pickup on the freeway. The only 3 things I don't like is the gas mileage, wide turn radius and the fact that my front windshield cracked after sitting in 104 heat during the summer for several with the windows rolled up...guess it couldn't handle the heat.

Just bought this truck and so far I'm very happy with it. Prefer the SLS model so I can customize to my own taste. Excellent ride and handling. Doesn't feel like a truck. No bouncing and swaying. Great acceleration, good pull up hill. Gas mileage is a little rough, but with some minor modifications, should be able to get into the 20's. Buy this truck. Better ride, handling and I expect better longevity than the competition. Great truck for the price. Excellent value.

I FOUND THIS VEHICLE TO BE BUILT WELL
WITH A VERY STRONG ENGINE, ALTHOUGH MY
MILEAGE WASN'T QUITE UP TO WHAT I
EXPECTED,ALSO IT'S SOMEWHAT WIDE TURN
RADIUS MADE IT MORE OF A CHALLENGE IN
OFF ROAD DRIVING.THE INTERIOR IS QUITE
COMFORTABLE, I AM A LARGE MAN AND THIS
VEHICLE HAS AMPLE SHOULDER, AND LEG
ROOM. I HAVE OWNED THIS VEHICLE FOR
TWO YEARS AND HAVE EXPERIENCED NO
PROBLEMS WITH ANYTHING ,FROM BUMPER TO
BUMPER.I AM SORRY TO SEE THEM
DISCONTINUE THIS VEHICLE PLAFORM.
