At 90,000 miles the rear air fan went out. It had to be replaced.

General Comments:

I have been extremely happy with this SUV. We haven't had to make any repairs other than normal wear and tear (brakes, tires etc...). We took it in the shop at 90,000 miles just to get thing checked out before the warranty was up and it was in top running condition and now with over a 130,000 miles on it it still runs great.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
