Just don't do it..... Left me stranded
3 times in 6 months. So fun to drive
and rides wonderful. So sad that
reliability is so terrible. Window
problems, electrical problems, fuel
pump...endless. Back to the Japanese
automakers for me.
Plenty of power. Comfortable ride.
Dumbest cupholders of all time. It was
like they designed and built the truck
and said ..Oh shot we forgot the
cupholders. Where can we put them?
This was one of the first off the
manufacturing line: number 2000
something. Many early annoying issues
with rattles etc., but once these got
ironed out it has been outstanding.
It burns no oil whatsoever even at
150k. It has powerful acceleration
and great handling for a suv.
Acceleration, handling and style.
The original rattles etc alomst lost
me...once those got sorted out it has
been great. Dealer has been okay, but
expensive. I use a local mechanic for
brakes and other stuff.

Like many of the other reviews, so many
electrical issues, especially in the
cold weather. seat warmers take forever
vs other competitors. windows not
functioning (bad switch) was the
biggest pain in the a**. so many
interior noises (buzz, squeaks, rattles
& wind noise). VERY CHEAP looking
interior. also had transmission issues.
my job consists of entertaining and
driving customers around and i am
constantly embarassed with this
vehicle. never again. MB just lost
I have thoroughly enjoyed driving this vehicle
for last 6 years. It has been reliable,
comfortable and useful. The dealerships I have
dealt with have been great. I feel very safe
driving this car in high traffic urban areas and
cross-country. Handles excellent in all
weather. Very few repairs have been needed in
