Pros

This SUV has plenty of room to take long or short trips. The leather seats are very comfortable, easy to clean and hold up to a lot of use. Gas milage is not bad. V8 motor has plenty of power out on the road or hauling a small trailer or boat. On icy roads it handles great with the AWD feature, acceleration and braking is instant.

Cons

Gas milage is low due to large engine. Averages 19 mpg

This Vehicle Is Great And Is Very Versatile — I really like the tape recorder on the visor for small details or grocery lists. The AWD on bad road conditions is wonderful. You don't have to think about if you need to put it in four wheel drive or not, it automatically does it for you before its too late. The V8 power is wonderful out on the road trying to pass or pulling small trailers. Over all it is a great vehicle for family or working.

Pros

V-8 power with decent mileage, nice body style, not overly large

Cons

Too few aftermarket parts

Excellent Little S.u.v.!!! — The only thing I don't like is the lack of aftermarket parts for the 5.0 liter option in this car. Getting a cold air kit and a free flowing exhaust would help the power and mileage. I have yet to find anything that I need it to do that it can't. It tows medium sized trailers easily, it pulls most anything very nicely. Service isn't a problem, oil changes are quick and easy, chassis lubrication isn't much worse, some of the grease zerks can be a pain, but not too bad. All in all, an easy to own and easy to maintain vehicle.

Pros

I love the sporty look, along with the cage guard on front. Always handled very well on all terrains I have been on, including ice! Seats are comfortable on the daily commute and longer road trips alike. The only maintenance that has been required was the battery, tires for tread, and basic fluids and oil change. Though I have recently changed out then alternator as well, for a better and smoother run. Never had any lagging or false starts. Remarkable vehicle.

Cons

The only quality con is probably the gas mileage, given it is an SUV. When the fluids are all current it still ranks high for an SUV, but not as good as a Honda.

I Have Owned Many Suvs, This Was My Favorite, Hands Down! — Overall, I enjoy the majority of aspects of this vehicle. Cargo capacity and plenty of room, no blind spots, low-maintenance, and enjoyable drive. Again, the only negative is moderately low gas mileage: 21-24 city, and roughly 27/28 highway miles.

Awd Uav — With the 5.0 HO motor this all wheel drive beast really is an Urban Assault Vehicle. With Leather Seats, Sun Roof, Climate control, and the Mach Stereo, this is about as good as it gets when it gets bad outside

Pros

Great engine - comfy and versatile interior - decent off road capabilities

Cons

Thirsty - fuel tank not big enough - bouncy ride

My First Company Car In The Us - 4x4 - 5.0l V8 - Ideal For Michigan Winter Driving — The 5.0L V8 engine was great although the auto transmision had a bit of lag when downshifting. As with most SUV's of that time,ride was crap (very bouncy) and handling wasn't great either as it rolled quite a bit. Was great off-road though... Unfortunately couldn't choose colour and ended up driving an ambulance...

My Ride =] — Performance is great and very smooth for a big suv. Quality is one of the best, its so much better than the new car qualities. This is like those 1970s chevelles and mustangs. Appearance is real hot in and out. Gas mileage isnt the best but its not the worst. This car is definitely fun to drive anywhere and anyday =]

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)
