This has been the best
Water pump, front U-joints, thermostat, catalytic converter, & seat recline levers.
I live in KC MO area. I have taken this truck on two trips across country.
MO to NY (2400 mile round trip) - 10MPG with trailer.
MO to S. TX (1000 mile round trip) - 16MPG.
It has performed flawlessly. My wife had an Envoy that was not as comfortable. I do a tune up every spring, and an oil change every 3000 miles.
We live on a small farm north of Kansas City, so it does not get a pampered life. It has been run hard and over loaded. I've even pulled others bigger and smaller out of the sand at the beach in S. TX. A good set of tires, and it won't get stuck.
I have owned other Dodges, Fords, GMs, a Datsun, and a Subaru. No transmission problems.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
