"As I said, love it. Had problems with the dealship when it comes to warrenty stuff. Brakes are the biggest problem as there was a recall and again the dealership is constantly fixing what they did wrong the last time. Obviously not great milage but who cares if you are buying this type of vehicle.
Tows great. Used a car dolly and didn't even know I was towing.
Actually gets better milage on hilly terrane (we go through WV) I'm guessing slower speeds but plenty of low end power and the tranny is great at selecting the correct gears at the right time (unlike my old 2000 ford explorer I traded in)."
"I have had this vehicle since Jan 07, it is a great ride for such a large SUV and although the gas mileage is a kicker, that should be expected with a V8 and a vehicle this size. It holds 8 comfortably and still has storage for luggage and groceries. I haven't had a moment's problem with the vehicle and would recommend it to my own family members. It does take some time getting used to the huge wheelbase, you must pay attention to the road, as you are almost as wide as the lane on the interstate. If you are a small person, the bucket seats are nice, but I would recommend that you purchase the automatic seat memory, as they are built standard for a larger person, and it is hard to find your original place if someone else moves the seat."
