We bought this 2003 esv 1 month ago and we owned an 2000 excursion 4x4. We sold it to buy this what a great riding suv. The awd works great and we got an avg of 16.6 in stop and go traveling from va beach to north Carolina beaches.NOT BAD..we use to get 11 mpg The Int is so nice but I'm disappointed in the rear cargo area with all the plastic..could have done more...
Purchased this SUV in Nov 07 with 80,000 mi. Looks great and engine runs smooth. I am disipointed that I had to rebuild the front diff at 82000 and replace the power steering at 85000. If this continues I will have to trade it in for newer. With 5 kids my choices are limited. My other SUV is a 97 Lexus LX450 with 165000 mi and I have not had to replace or fix anything major. I hope GM will step up the quality and build a truck that will last 200,000mi or I will go back to Toyota products once I don't need 7 seats plus storage.
This is the first and last time I'm
buying an American car. I got the car
because of the space to transport 5+
people, which it's great for, but it
feels like I'm driving a tank. For the
price of the car quality is not up to par
(same as a chevy truck). My 2 yr old
could pull this car to pieces. Very
plasticy inside with snap-on pieces.
I would rather take 2 quality cars
(BMW/Mercedes) with less seats
than 1 plasticy tank.
Although I paid just about MSRP since
the vehicle is new to this area, I'm
very satisfied. Excellent looks,
good, tight handling, fit, and
finish. The only drawback is that the
interior finish should have been
upgraded for a vehicle in this price
range. The satellite radio is an
unexpected pleasure and the OnStar
system works very well with the
