Summary:

A very good improvement on the previous model

Faults:

So far nothing touch wood.

General Comments:

There is a big difference between this engine and the old engine. The 2.7 CRD is a lot quieter and gear change is a lot smoother. The Quadra-trac system is also a very good addition to the car. The new engine possesses 23 hp more than the previous engine and is noticeable. The 2003 model still retains its comfort aspect with more than enough leg-room for passengers in the back. I own the 2.7 CRD Laredo Vermont the car still maintainsd its style and is a head turner wherever you go.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

General Comments:

I am very happy with this car as I use it as my work vehicle. It is very comfortable and the diesel version is not bad on fuel consumption.

I have had this car for 3 years now and have had no major problems as such even though I don't think this car is worth its cost price now.

99% OF PEOPLE ARE IMPRESSED BY THIS VEHICLE. The acceleration was surprising for a vehicle of its weight. This car is a very good car as a 2nd-hand buy with low mileage.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
