A decent SUV
The first month, it developed a minor fluid leak. The dealer had to inject the UV die to locate the leak and repair it. Altogether, the process took three days.
Around 11,000 miles, the brakes began squealing when I stopped at speeds above 30. The dealer checked the brakes and indicated there were no problems. Now, at 20,000, the brakes still squeak. The dealer's latest answer was it's normal because of the metallic graphite material the brakes are made out of.
The v8 engine has plenty of power. I don't have much use for the 4x4 features down here in Miami, so I can't really say much about that. The leather seats are comfortable, and I like the radio/CD controls on the steering wheel.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
