Pros

Roomy interior, sturdy exterior

Cons

Brakes, gas mileage, suspension

The Beast — The vehicle is definitely roomy, and I feel very safe driving it, knowing that nobody in their right mind would want to hit me. The gas mileage is terrible. The suspension needs work, and the brakes are a little soft and respond slowly. The interior needs a little work, but the exterior is acceptable. The vehicle, for the most part, is unreliable, since my fiance had an additional alarm installed in it. I would not recommend this large of a vehicle for a small family, struggling to make ends meet. This is a vehicle for a person with money to burn and time to make repairs.

Shamoo — Overall a great family oriented vehicle, that has taken quite the beating. Has kept my family alive and warm overnight in a blizzard along I-40 not once but twice, and has been the most reliable automobile we have ever owned.

Like Driving From Your Recliner In Your Living Room. — The car has a computer, but it can't diagnose a lot of the engine issues. ie- fuel pump slowly going, mass air flow sensor, idle control sensor, and fuel pressure regulator going around the same time. Besides for these issues the car drives smooth and comfortably.

Big Car Lots Of Fun — For long car rides it is fun and so far it has towed everything i throw at it. it huals ass and even though the mileage and gas prices are horrible, it still has a spot in my driveway for it.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Superb — Best family car ever !! 24" wheels, 17" screen inside, What could be better ? Custom made by my ideas over the last few years. Adding the lights, removing chrome, and changing the front bumber was the most dramatic changes. I love it.

Awesome — I didn't like the fact that most of the parts are more expensive. On the other hand, I should of expected it since it is a 4 WD. Other than that, it has been a great vehicle to my family and me.

Absolutely Love It! Raised My Family In It, Very Reliable! — Orignal owner, I love everything about this car. The only draw back is the gas mileage. My family is grown now and we don't need all that room, 90% of the time its just me in the car. The leather seats have always been so comfortable and soft. The auto 4-wheel drive is wonderful, never had any trouble in the snow! (Ever) The repairs have been average, brakes, tires, transmission, just normal wear and tear. I have always taken very good care of my vehicles, very faithful with the oil changes. It is a big car the acceleration is adequate but once your on 70 mph it just glides. Heated front seats, 4x4, ac, cd, onstar, pw/pb/tow package/ running boards/custom wheels, new tires 10/12.

Best In Class — Love the space, huge cargo, captains chairs are heated and very comfy. DVD keeps everyone entertained on long trips, kids can sleep in the back at the lake. Accelerates nicely even when towing, a real workhorse. Very reliable and has held up like a champ.
