Bought the car 4 years ago because we thought we would be going into the woods and hauling. Well we never did either, although we live in Chicago so it's nice in the snow. Everything about the car is great, the ride, interior, dependability, lost cost of ownership, except for gas. So my biggest complaint is MPG. I get 13-15 in suburban driving and 15-16 on the highway. For this size car there other options that get 20+ MPG such as the Honda passport. No serious mechanical issues, in fact no minor mechanical issues except a leaky CV boot, which is good since I bought it used. Height/level adjustment is nice but unnecessary unless you are towing. I recommend for people towing/traveling.
Very comfortable ride, if desired, can be switched to a more firm ride with the turn of the dial. Oil takes 8+ quarts which is great for reliability. Front seats are very comfortable, backs are OK. Most favorite feature dependability, this thing is built well. Some things go too far like belt driven fan.
Seems prone to corrosion. Many rust "stains" showing up. Needs to be more fuel efficient. Navigation map upgrade is way too expensive, $250, needs to be made cheaper, but can be found on bit torrent. Would like to be able to lower the height while on highway to improve fuel efficiency.
This truck is comfortable, smart, and capable. No other car in the world has this quality. No other car in the world has this capability combined with such luxury. I feel on top of the world behind the wheel, and can only think of getting another one for my wife.
build quality, dvd system, ride height adj, movable outside mirrors, towing capacity is plenty for the trailer, quite ride, visibility, smell of interior, width of front bucket seats, and overall look.
Fuel economy is marginal, but when you realize it's only 230hp pulling over 5000 pounds, you do the math and it's just physics...
By far, this is the ultimate SUV.
Nothing else compares with the quality
Navigation system and audio system is
incredible and the best on the market
by far. Very comfortable on the
road. I have taken it on several
cross-country road trips, and it is a
dream.... feels like you are sitting
on your sofa at home.
