Pretty good truck, but for the price I had hoped for more.
There are many things I like about my truck. The looks, I am constantly getting compliments on how nice it looks. I have 8000 km on it, and have had no issues with things not working. The on star phone is very handy and a lot safer than fumbling with a cell phone.
There are a few things that I am not happy about. First of all the comfort of the seats. We have a bench seat in the front, and the middle seat is very hard and too low even for kids to ride in. We recently took a 4 hour trip, we had to switch the kid riding in the front middle because of the discomfort. The wife and I were both stiff and sore from the uncomfortable seats on each side of the front seat. Maybe the buckets are better? The other thing that I do not like is the fuel economy. I am averaging 15l/100 km. I think that is about 15 - 26 miles/ gal. All the salesmen and reports I read claimed we would be getting 22-24 miles/gal. I have the 5.3litre motor and 4:10 rear end. I was told that some people were getting up to 27 miles/gal. Of course by a salesman. I was told that with the "Active Fuel Management System" I was told that 4:10 gears would not affect the mileage much because it would switch to 4 cylinder mode more often. OK OK so I fell for the sales pitch.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
