An Unmitigated Disaster

After purchasing this car in September 2006 for $13.2K with 76K miles on it, I have paid over $8K in repairs for just 12,000 miles driven. The transmission went out and required a complete rebuild ($4K), the air suspension and associated compressor failed ($3K), and various other things electronic in nature failed ($1K+) such as the door locks, a bunch of interior lights and the display panel for the heater. The remote function on the key does not work at all, so the key must be used old fashion style to lock and unlock the vehicle. Just an awful experience compared to my 1994 BMW 540i that has 142K miles on it and has given me no problems except normal wear and maintenance.
Love the stereo controls on the steering wheel, the heated seats, and the rear window wiper.
Build a vehicle that is reliable and doesn't cost thousands of dollars for routine repairs. A $68,000 SUV should not have this many things fail.
