I have owned several SUVs in the past and this is the first one that did not cost me an arm and a leg to purchase or maintain. The GMC Envoy I bought for my wife ended up costing me an extra $900 6 months later when a rock hit her headlamp assembly and broke it. The headlamp assembly alone was $900 to replace! GM has officially priced themselves out of my market. Cost of ownership on the Rodeo is very low. As long as the oil is changed and manufacturers suggested maintenance is followed, this SUV will last for many years. The tailgate's sideways opening is a little awkward in tight spots, but functional nonetheless. I could not be happier with the drive and overall operation.
6-disk in dash CD changer, standard power options, winter driving capability, low cost of ownership.
