      Don't have to worry about this one. I called dealer and asked some of the service questions before I came to look at the car. About 30 mins. later sales guy called and said car was moved to auction...

      I don't see diesel taking off in SUVs until they bring the price points down. You really have to justify the break even point for operating cost vs initial price. I haven't run the numbers but assume...

      after digging in the 3.6 motor forum, the oil pump bolt and plastic piece or guide on the timing belt are common causes of engine failure in the 3.6. So it sounds like see if those things have been...

      All I have looked at have been 07's with the 2.0t with the exception of one that is a 3.6 wagon. I like the 3.6 but heard they can be very hungry on fuel? I am also not seeing as many issues noted...

      Some help folks, what are the pain points on these cars? Been searching and starting to see several issues, so not sure if I should be nervous of the car or not.

      it is illegal and can see instances where it hurts them more than helps them. I could see a person getting caught having to wait to clear traffic to make the left or U-turn being longer than the wait...

      i always liked the looks, didn't know if really had the numbers to match. To get most SUV/CUVs to get into the 13's you are stepping into a way different price range.
