    Superior Comfort And Power. I Love This Vehicle! — We love this vehicle, and feel totally spoiled by its comfort, particularly on long trips. Reaches highway speed effortlessly and quietly. We have never needed a major repair, and it is at 166K; mechanic says the Triton engine is one of the best models ever made and it should go much, much farther without needing anything but routine maintenance. By driving it smoothly I routinely get 14.5 mpg in the city, 14.5 to 15 highway, even when driving 70-75 mpg. Superior in so many ways we are afraid to ever sell it, for fear we won't find another vehicle built so well! Absolutely recommend this vehicle for dependability, power and comfort.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Roomy, seats as comfy as my home sofa,excellent for comfort on long trips, awesomely powerful engine, yet quiet running.  This bird flies effortlessly!  By driving smoothly in city and on highway, I get 14.5 mpg consistently, sometimes 15 mpg which is not bad for such a powerhouse engine.  166K miles on it now and still going strong.  2 bucket seats, 1 full bench seat seats 3 large adults comfortably, 3rd bench seat seats 3 children or young adults or 2 large adults.   Leather interior looks great, easy to keep clean.   Front and rear A/C, excellent sound system including 6 CD changer and cassette player, front and rear controls, front and back extra power jacks for plugging in accessories.

    Cons: 14.5 mpg - with current gas prices it is a little pricey to fill up the huge tank.  Quiet, powerful and smooth acceleration so it's very easy to exceed the speed limit without realizing it!

    says:
    i love it except the front bolt that holds the brakes together is stripped out and i keep having to replace it with another one which is scary cause the brakes could foul up and not work and the tire discombobulates and wont let me drive any further. but i love to drive it and its really fun to drive.
