Not bad rigs if taken care of. If equipped with a 6 cylinder ,The early ones from 04-06 had valve seat issues. The engine itself is not repair friendly. Anything valve train requires special tools. Couple of my friends own them, one of them has a 05 it needs a 2500.00 cylinder head job. Oil changes are crucial, the camshaft depends on the oiling system to advance the timing. Intake gaskets like to leak. The exhaust manifolds like to crack. Seen some come in with over 200k miles and some less. Anything abused and not taken care of I'd stay away from.

Yeah the one I was lookin at is an 05 v6 with 137,000 miles. This makes me have second thoughts about it. Those repairs would be too expensive. Thanks man

they mostly all have those issues, they even had a non recall and extended some peoples warranty i think to 7 or 10 yrs 100000, after that you are on your own
