Amazing SUV, consider getting one


Nothing that I did not do myself.

While off roading, I hit a jump at 50mph and landed on a man-hole cover, which broke the front CV joint.

And while driving through a lake, some water got into the distributor cap.

Even with both of these problems, it got me home fine.

Even in my accident, the other car was unrecognizable and mine was still drivable.

General Comments:

This was possibly the most comfortable car I ever owned, it could fit 9 people and was THE best road-trip car.

If you had to haul anything, it was great. Even with 900 pounds of wood in the back, there was little noticeable power loss.

It isn't a race car, but it's a lot faster than you would think from a full sized SUV.

Extremely reliable, comfortable, and just a great all around car.

The only problem is gas, but even then it wasn't bad, with the 50 gallon tank, if you filled it up, it would last you weeks of city driving.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
