Decent vehicle with good reliablty. Retained value over time is very poor however. Plan on keeping this vehicle, even if you acquired it for well under list price, as it's trade in value is very low.
Good suspension, relaible, adequate power and room. Good safety numbers. Full body on frame construction. AFter market parts are resonably priced and available.
H rated OEM tires need to go to allow ore tire choices. Larger fender wells to allow 65 or 70 series tires. Heat/AC controls need improvement. AC condensor fan quality needs to be improved. Dealer supplied parts and service are expensive.
