Reliable, well thought out vehicle
Brakes were bad when purchased.
Small nut behind transmission corroded and created coolant leak. had to drop transmission to fix. $405 in labor for a $5 part install. Ouch.
Oxygen sensor is slowly going.
Overall this is a very comfortable, useful and well laid out truck.
It handles fairly well, has a pretty comfortable ride, and compared with friend's trucks from other manufacturers, I'd say it's definitely my preference among mid-size SUVs.
The only running issue I have is the poor gas mileage. Less than 15mpg in town. I know it's a truck, but it's a smaller one, and I would like to see more.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
