purchased my vechile in october of 2010. so far i am happy with my pruchase. the ride is excellent. the only major problem is the you can't see clearly through the back seat window for the head rest. it is a very smooth ride.

This is one solid and steady car. Road noise is minimal and you hardly feel any bumps. The interior is roomy and very comfortable. I have traveled across the country and back in one so I have first hand experience. MPG on mine is 15/18 with a V8. I suggest you go with the V* for the extra power but watch your speed, it can get away from you!
Great full size SUV

Rides very well and has many nice features that newer cars have cut. I get about 21 MPG on mix of city and some rural driving, not too bad. The 4L engine is adequate, but noticeable difference to my previous big engine Mountaineer. Overall I am happy with it.
