Purchased this vehicle coming off lease at 160,000km. Used to pull 24 ft 6000lb Bayliner boat for years and family to cottage and run deliveries for a business. Only problem is 3 replacements of fuel pump. Suggest use full synthetic oil for winter driving for quieter startups. Fuel milage: incredable for SUV this size, 21 MPG on highway and 18 in city. Great family and business vehicle
4wd in winter heavy snow and pulling boat out of the water. Comfortable leather seats and good paint finish
It has a very wide turning radius, can be awkward in tight parking conditions
Transmission went out at 43,000 miles.
The fluid and filter was changed at
30,000. The transmission shop said a
bearing in the "reverse plantary came
apart. He called it a fluke. I pulled
and installed the trans myself but it
cost $900.00 to rebuild - an expensive
The fuel pump went out at 51,000± miles.
The rear end started whinning slightly
at 45,000 miles. It was incorrectely
clearanced at the factory. The shim on
the left side was too thin resulting in
the whin and some bearing chatter
marks. I reclearanced the ring gear
with the original bearing and it is
still running quiet at 71,000 miles.
Has anybody had similar problems?
Large and roomy. A great "kidmobile".
Carrys the whole family, luggage and
our bass boat without straining.
Move the second seat back for more
