A Full Sized Suv — I owned this car for 7 years and it worked out great for me. It did everything it was supposed to and did it with comfort and style. It took me from Connecticut to Sunset Beach, NC over 15 times and always made the 13 hour trip comfortable.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: The car was great from the time I purchased it new.  A very comfortable and reliable SUV

Cons: Would have liked better mileage but averaged 15 around town, same as I got with my Explorer and it was smaller and not as comfortable on the long trips

Good Solid Suv — big truck very good for a large family or someone who just needs a large cargo carrying area. at the time I needed another vehicle and could not pass up on its price. next vehicle will be four wheel drive.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Its big and can tow about anything for its size pretty good mpg.  good ride

Cons: tends to lean in curves because of how tall it is.   no four wheel drive

Super... It Does Everything I Bought It To Do. —

Great SUV. VERY comfortable and could tow a house if you could figure out how to attach it. I guess for the size, the mileage is not that bad... 13 town and 18 highway. It was better before I was forced to buy 10% Ethanol That seems to be the biggest joke on the American motorist ever perpetrated. Cuts the mileage by 10% also. This has made corn product go higher in the process. When are we going to go to hydrogen? Burn water! I have read articles on this car and they seem to find things wrong with it that I don't. I think a lot of the problems people have are from their own doing. Routine maintenance is big in my book. Most people do not pay attention as long as their car starts when they get in it. I usually get 180k-250k miles on my cars before I get rid of them and they still run and look good. This is not a sport car so I didn't expect high performance from it. It has no problem keeping up with traffic and I am happy. I think it is well built and good looking for what it is.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: If you travel a lot, tow or carry big loads inside. it can't be beat.

Cons: If you can't accept the mileage, don't even look at one.

Very Reliable And Inexpensive To Maintain — it is very reliable, has independant rearend which makes it handle very great. it has moderate breaking abilities and accelarates hard thanks to the only 2 valve 5.4 lite. it gets around in the mud and snow with no issues due to the very refined 4xD. gets about 15 mpg around town.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: it rides like a dream and will get out of its way in a hurry

Cons: it is a little on the large side but thats a no brainer

Comfort, Class And A Big Set Of Hairy Balls! — Awesome...but a little piggy at the pump. Room for 7 people and their luggage and you can tow a 10,000 pound trailer behind you! Comfortable highway cruiser...and just as comfortable barrelling down a logging road or crawling through mudholes.

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

Pros: Can tow a 34 footer, unlike the crappy GMC

Cons: 14mpg

Decent For One Of The First Years With The Upgrades — we bought it for the room and the price allowed us to get out from underneath our failing Kia Sedona. Since then it as been back to the shop twice for the same computer issue...$350 later I think we're ok.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: roomy, handles well for a full size SUV and the mileage is better than you would expect

Cons: lack of attention to detail in the manufacturing.
