ReviewIt gets about 15 mpg , not bad for a V8 and heavy vehicle. Great drive, great audio system, very luxurious inside. There have been several reliability issues, but I think after 2004 many things have been fixed. The power window switches are white plastic, painted black, the paint comes off easily. The air suspension had a new compressor put in at 22,000 miles and the tires are getting work out (19" Pirellis), gonna try Michelin next. A seatbelt seized up in the rear, and one headlight had a bad connection. I still love this car! It gets lots of compliments.
Best FeaturesGood looking design inside and out, good power and handling. Great audio system, decent milege for the size, great wheels (19"). Great towing.
Worst FeaturesTires that wear longer, a better navigation system (with street names), bluetooth connectivity, iPod adaptors, oil changes that aren't $300 from the dealer... synthetic oil is great, but not that great. Dealers' service departments need to be upgraded, and the warranty should be 100,000 miles
