"Truck was bought by me in 2004 - it had 40,000 mile on it at that time - I used it to pull my boat. Truck is very dependable - has remote start - key less entry - daytime running lights - very sharp - along with all the other options. Tires are fairly new. I am short - the 6 way power drivers seat has me sitting up high in the cab - which was one of the reason I picked this truck. The inside is leather and very clean - the outside body does have rust in the hind panels. This truck has been my Winter driving vehicle - it is AWD and rides smooth with the V8 engine. I also own a Subaru Forester and am just looking to downsize to the 1 vehicle now that I no longer own my boat."

"This has been a good car for me. it has had only a couple of problems (one major - fuel pump); and I feel very safe driving the vehicle. I like being "up" higher than sedans. My biggest complaint is not getting good mileage."

"I LOVE this car! Bought it new in 1999, have driven it in all sorts of weather, on thousand-mile trips a dozen times. So reliable, so comfortable, so solid. Never let me down. Just now, things are starting to go.....just replaced a cracked radiator, and the sway bars' linkage is broken, so I'm (sadly) getting a new car."

"The vehicle is great. I am looking to purchase 4WD, AWD this is RWD. I bought this when I lived in Florida but now I live in Pittsburgh Pa.Having trouble with the door lock not opening with key or remote. I think I can fix that. A friend told me my transmission feels like its slipping a little. The engine hood does not stay open on its own , I have to prop with a baseball bat."

One of the best cars I've ever owned.
