"Priced at about the same as an avalanche why would you not get the EXT? I love mine.. Its 10 years old and I still get compliments on it everyday. I have 0 problems with it and still rides like a brand new truck. Luxury with a mix of a utility truck. Gas mileage sucks but you dont buy this car for MPGs! Nav is tricky but works great once you figure out how to input destinations. All in all the best truck I have ever bought and you can get a great deal on a used one! Get one now!"

"I've had it for about 6 months and already put 10k miles on it. Work is about a half a mile away which shows how much I like to just drive it around. It looks great, performs as good as you maintain it and gets tons of compliments wherever you go. My 4wheeler fits perfect in the back with the tailgate down and you can still have 5 people in the cab. I wish it wasn't AWD but maybe that just keeps me out of trouble. If your looking at buying one and you aren't worried about keeping it clean or hauling a huge trailer, I'd recommend it."

"This is the best large SUV/truck I've ever had. I've had at least three others. Although this is my favorite vehicle of the bunch; which includes two Suburbans, there are some interior flaws. The paint on the center console has chipped off. Although I had this replaced once under Warranty, the second one is peeling the same way the first one did. It must be an inferior quality. This vehicle will be hard to replace, with all the room and flexibility it provides. But sooner or later I will get rid of it, and I won't miss the vehicle fuel mileage. Around 11mpg average. Terrible."
