I had to put a head gasket on my 2002. Did it myself. Dealer wanted $6k to to the head gasket. This thing runs like a horse and is fun to drive while looking classy.

I own 2 Disc ll and I would have it no other way....01 and 99....if you are willing to research you can cut your cost on repairs if you do the work yourself. It is the saftest car I would put my kids in. Tehy have thier issues but it is the only SUV that can go the distance....the world is it's play ground....
