CD player did not work from day one. Dealer looked at it, but wouldn't honor a guarantee. It is still not fixed.
From day one, oil leaking onto exhaust pipe causing a burning smell. After the ssecond try, the dealer had fixed.
At 71,000 there was a recall for a front end part. Dealer said my Vin number was OK. I ended up replacing that part at 89,000 miles at my own expense.
Brake job at 93,000. Cost was over $900.
Hard starting at 104,000. Tune up and a few other replacement parts needed.
Check engine light has been on since 119,000 miles. Cost $90 to hook up to test equipment. Dealer said there was a very small leak in the exhaust system. Decided not to lay out another $600. Still waiting for bulb to burn out.
At 161,000 miles, the overdrive light is blinking. Just serviced, but the transmission fluid was over looked and low. After adding fluid, the light went out for a few days. Fluid level is still fine, but light is back on. It is time to totally change the fluid.
At 163,000 miles, the whole vehicle is creaking and making noises. Lubrication has not helped.
This is a very good looking SUV.
Lots of power and fun to drive.
With the all wheel drive, it handles very well in snow.
Lots of room, however, the rear seats do not fold down very flat.
Rear seats are not too comfortable for an adult.
Noise level is higher than expected in the back seat.
