Pros: "The looks / useability was reason for purchase"

Cons: "Costliest vehicle I have ever owned for repairs!!!"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 1

"This vehicle has been the most costly to own I have ever experienced in 30+ years of truck buying! Left front brake caliper froze up, 3 of the 4 power window motors failed, MANY vehicle sensors failed, exterior hardware on rear compartments have either seized up or inoperative, the fuel gage never reads full & other gages have all been replaced as they would peg out, terrible gas mileage, drivers seat stitching is starting to pull apart, spent over $300 on right rear door wiring harness / speaker / and misc. repair to stop static in radio which is STILL present, cold engine shake for about 3-4 minutes, misc. interior floor trim pieces popped up, and about 3 inches of dealer receipts showing thousands of dollars on misc. other repairs!"

Cons: "Bad on gas , and its not a real truck"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"Its 9/2014 - I have owned this vehicle since new ($46,000)and 166k, my maintenance cost per year are around 1000 averaging. Gas is crazy bad for this since the ethanol came into play. I was getting right at 19 on the interstate and 15 in the city, now I get 15 no matter how I drive. Ethanol has ruined my gas mileage so yea I'm not a fan. If you have a large family this is an excellent truck and really it pretty cheap to maintain. The biggest issue I have had are the sensors under the manifold (i forget what they are called)and the fuel pump in the tank(bad design) these was unexpected and costly around 500. each I figure even if the motor went out I would keep it because a motor for this truck is only around 1k. I have no complaints and I'm pretty picky. I doubt I would buy this again because of the gas mileage (you never get it back) but if your a large family and its all local get one you wont look back. Also keep in mind this isnt really a truck (no leaf springs) so when I tow I really know its back there."

"I purchased this vehicle brand new. I have had very few repairs outside of normal maintenance. Still looks almost new. I have used for many family trips, golf trips, pulling a almost 6000lb camper and it always does the job. This will be a sad truck to let go."

Pros: "Gives you a Tahoe feel and the power of a Pickup"

Cons: "Gas Mileage"

"I have had this truck for a month now. Second owner. It has 137,000 miles on it but you could never tell It runs like a champ. I purchased this car after flipping my Chevy Tahoe and I must say This is way better than the Tahoe. I have the convenience of a pick up and the feel of a Tahoe"
