Smooth and Comfortable Ride
I have owned the vehicle for 9 years with 55k miles on it. Only unscheduled service visit is the failed air suspension, just about a week ago, the driver front air bladder started to leak air. Otherwise, it is trouble free. Gas consumption is not bad, overall I get about 17.5 MPG with 50/50 mix local and highway. Local driving with reasonable traffic gets 16 MPG, highway cruising at 75 will get 19 with head wind, 20+ with tail wind. I have been driven it over snow as deep as 7-8 inches and icy roads, no problems at all.
Driving around town is easy with light steering effort and agile for such a large vehicle. Minimal road and wind noise, very stable in crosswind conditions. Navigate thru Rocky Mountains and Pikes Peak with a roof top carrier, doesn't notice much different in term of stability and surefootness. Overall, it's a great family vehicle.
