Bought it cert pre-owned w 36k miles on it. Drove it from Florida to Alaska through Yukon without one hitch. V8 is sharp, powerful, easily passes 18 wheelers on 2 lane roads. Steering is very nimble for an SUV, but a little numb (prob GM-based). Makes u-turns as well as my sport car (in 2 and half lanes). Interior provides nearly every feature a Mercedes SUV does. Good interior size and rear seats fold down for carrying bigger stuff. Performs better than most cars in the snow and ice (use studded snow tires!) due to its immense weight, but the engine doesn't make it feel heavy. 1 and 2 gear perform very well without over revving. Heated seats burn my back! (Good thing w -25 F temp).
Heated seats, climate control for front and rear passengers, DVD entertainment standard. Reliable despite driving conditions. Engine power, good mileage range (340 miles a tank), cargo room, exterior design, radio/XM, passenger mirror lowers in reverse for curb view, heater, turn radius.
Cup holder placement. Initiate 4wd smoothly at lower speed or from stop; can "knock" when 4wd kicks in on hills at 20-35 mph (like Yellowstone park); remove dated radio antenna; front fascia fits improperly at the sides without good fix but minor; engine/fluid heater; upgrade some plastics in cabin
