Review

I have owned this car since new, and purchased it simply because i liked the styling. It was like nothing out there at the time. Well the car has proven to be very reliable and the interior has held up exceptionally well. It's one of the few SUV that DOES use real leather and real wood trim. Unlike the American or Japanese SUVs that use leatherette? and only a small 12"x12" patch of real leather; what a joke! I recommend this car to anyone wanting to purchase a very nice SUV, that you can own for many years and have the car perform, look good and unique. However, maintenance is not cheap. its very expensive, but the car is well worth it. the reward is a nice car that gets better with age.


Best Features

A true do all luxury vehicle. great interior trim, harmon kardon sound, no short cuts.


Worst Features

More horse power, but adequate. This is not a sports car. But it was never meant to be one.

Review

I owned many SUVs including Land Cruiser, Montero, and Escelade but this is the best. It's the most stylish and most off road capable as well. After your long off road fun during the day you can still take it to the expensive restaurant. Very reliable if you maintain it and do some required services. Very easy to do stuff yourself on it. One offset is expensive parts and the fuel economy


Best Features

Active cornering enhancement, design, interior styling, off road capabilities, hill decent control, herman cardon sound system, 7 comfortable seats, rear seat entertainment


Worst Features

Make it a bit longer, and imrove the manual by listing more DIY stuff

Review

This is all truck. The fit and finish of the plastic items both inside and out leave quite a bit to be desired. Many small parts and bumper cover cracks, internal fit and finish is below par for a vehicle of this class, though very comfotable seating and appointments, the creature comfort systems cannot be relied upon. Swithces, and molding are too easy to break. These negatives aside, it has been a mechanical workhorse, very reliable and can truly drive through anything. I would put my kids in it any day.


Best Features

4 wheel drive, seat comfort, and overall driving comfort. Power to spare.


Worst Features

Fit and finish for molding and electronics.

Review

Bought it new and now have 7 years and 128K on it. Has been very solid and reliable, helped by following the maintenance schedule exactly. Best SUV out there. Replaced cylinder heads once (warranty) and head gaskets 80K later (no warranty). Sunroofs rattle. Gas mileage about 16.5 mpg since day one. Paint and interior still look new. It'll go more places than I'm willing to drive. Feels like it'll last forever.


Best Features

Good-looking, solid and reliable, go anywhere at any time.


Worst Features

None

Review

We have had problems from day one. Car has never been off road. Car has never been in the snow. We have had major electrical problems ranging from seat motors, engine wiring harness, brakes and rotors after just 20,000 miles. Oxygen sensors, headers, etc., ignition switch failure. My wife drives the car around town. It's the most unreliable car I have ever driven or heard about. Gas Hog. Horrible ride on freeway. Scared to take it off road for fear it will fall apart more than it has. Engine is 1960's technology!


Best Features

Large, heavy, safe.


Worst Features

Already done. Discontinued entire product and started over from scratch!
