I know this is not what you are looking for, and others have mentioned this series of SUV is not reliable, but it is a good example of what can be purchased at a specfic price point if one has time. This SUV will likely sell for around 13.5k. 2008 with under 30k miles. I would be concerened if it has a salvage title, price is very good so I am looking for the reason.

when you buy a vehicle its about the cost of owner ship combined with the intended use and features. the TB'* have the I'6 which has the head issues so say you get the TB for 2-3k less than a comparable shape and miles tahoe, yukon, sub. or truck for that matter. the mileage is the same for all of them, so no real savings or loss there, but the 5.3 is going to cost alot less in the long run when you factor in dealer cost for new heads and they are having issues with the TB'* getting carboned up and a couple other little things. so now the tb costs the same or more in the long run and you've compromised on size and features and power for no reason.
