Overall:

I dont like the retractable running boards ... when you are getting in it slows the process down and makes you either wait or stretch over further than normal. The throttle doesnt have a range (its more like on or off) which is no fun when you are off in the mud. All in all it does seem like a premium SUV which is what it is.

Love/hate — I have a love hate relationship with this car. Love the looks and space of it but everything else seems not so good. Looking to sell it/trade it in for something less expensive for maintenance and better gas millage!

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: I love the inside/outside look. I have two babies in car seats and I love all the space. Love the 3rd row seats and how you can fold them down to have more room in the back.

Cons: Uses gas like crazy yeah I know its a huge SUV but still. I get 10 city and just about the same hwy. The engine shakes so bad i can feel it in the steering wheel. Bought in 2009 and have felt it since. The tires are crazy expensive for this car size 18. Suspension went out $1300 to replace tune up cost me $1200. Right now the check engine light is on took it in told me cylinder 8 and 6 is misfiring and it would cost me $4K to fix this!!!

Great Multi Purpose Vehicle — This is a Great car. It runs beautifully you can hardly hear the engine on the highway. I drove it to work every day. Great for outings with family, perfect for highway trips. Seats 8 comfortably. Turns very tightly, radius much smaller than you might expect.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Great car. Runs beautifully. Drive to work, with family, perfect for highway trips. Seats 8 comfortably.

Cons: Mileage

Awesome — had a 2003, power running boards, all the awesome stuff, wasnt built for speed, built like a tank, it was white with grey accent, the best style of them all for me, exspensive insurance(my fault), gas mileage was not to bad for 3 tons, and i when i would drive it, it would make me feel like yes i am better than you are, smoothest ride, my 04 yukon was around 12 in city and about 14 on highway, and the ride was alot worse than the navi:)

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

Pros: would love to have another one but not the new body style, it would have to be about 2003-2006 model only

Cons: gas mileage

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: tons of room

Cons: gas mpg
