She's a big girl, but she's light on her feet!
In the seven years I have owned this car, the following repairs have been completed:
Tires, brakes, spark plugs, O2 sensor.
Tie rod ends.
This has been a great car. It has never left me stranded. The engine runs well, and returns wonderful gas mileage for a vehicle this large. Highway mileage is 26 mpg.
It is a very comfortable ride on the highway. We've driven 22 hours straight to Florida several times with no trouble.
Sure, the car isn't a road rocket, but you have to know that going in. The LT derived 4.3 engine is well engineered, except for the Optispark issue on some engines. This issue affects the 5.7 as well.
I keep the oil changed every 3 months. It never uses any oil between changes. Everything still works; power windows, A/C, radio, power seats, rear window defrost etc.
Towing capacity is 5000 Lbs; unheard of today for a car. I pull a 19 foot boat with it, and have no trouble at all.
I love the car, and would definitely buy another.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
