I am enjoying my 9-7x even though the prices at the pump make me question my decision sometimes. People are constantly looking to see what I am driving and honestly I like that. The styling is unique and the V8 is fun too. I haven't had any problems to date and the SUV has been a pleasure to drive. I only wish that the 2005 model had the fuel economy of the newer V8s with displacement on demand (or whatever GM calls it).
Love the V8...very strong and will get your blood pumping. The exterior styling is attractive but the rear end looks a little strange. The air pump in the rear is great for those who like the outdoors!
Better fuel economy in the V8... GM has already addressed this one. Cup holders are not exactly the best but it's not a huge issue.
