"Bought the car from dealer as a company exec car in 2004. Never had a bad experience with the car. No major repairs. Still no leaks on the garage floor. Minor problem with stereo speakers but not enough to get it fixed."
"AWD works great on this vehicle. Have had no major issues with it. AC and Heat get the job done nicely. Only down side is the leather seats that don't have heated seats. Takes a while for seats to warm up in winter. MPG's are great. Averaging right around 20mpg right now."
Pros: "Safety features & good view in all directions"
Cons: "not real good on gas but that is o.k."

"I bought this car new and the only problem I have had is to rebuild the transmission. Other than that, I have treated it like a baby. It has been kept in the garage when not in use. I feel safe in this car. I have had it serviced every 3,000 miles. It has had only 2 sets of tires and 2 brake jobs. I love this car because I hve a bum back and it is easy to get in and out and supports my back. It looks new and I have had people ask if I wanted to sell it. Of course, my answer is "no", the maintenance and good love and care are the secret to a car staying new regardless of the years you have had it. Great audio system, also."
"We bought this car used with high miles on it mostly for the reason being that it came from the south and has absolutely NO ROT. That being said we have now hit 240,000 miles, the motor and transmission go sweet. It rides like a cloud, but also take into consideration someone had just re-done all the suspension before we purchased. Either way goes to show you that if you take care of it a car like this is a good investment. We purchased the 2wd version because the wife doesn't drive in the snow and it produces close to 20mpg in the summer doing mostly in town running and around 16mpg in the winter with warming up the car. All in all a good vehicle but you really need to have a good alignment on the front end if not it seems very unstable and jerky when you steer it."
Pros: "Comfortable, nice looking, good power for a V6."
Cons: "No low range, no stability control (needed with Ti"

"I purchased this car used with just over 100K miles. Since it is used I didn't rate it on value. The only gripe I have is the Bridgestone Dueler H/T tires, this is the 2nd SUV I have owned with these tires and I have not liked the driving dynamics on either vehicle. I knocked of some on interior/exterior design for a few of the controls, but the quality seems rather good as long as you take care of it. It gets poor mileage due to being body on frame, but I knew that when I bought it."
