With the hot tune i have over 100 more TQ from stock and over 40HP and boy can you feel that TQ! Great for towing my small RV and it runs up the hills now! 100 more TQ make it feel like a whole new vehicle and 18mpg towing a 5k trailer! Beat that!

It has suffered several serious problems despite being just five years old and mostly driven on-road. Cracked radiator, broken driveshaft, now leaking power steering hoses. I have owned 10-year-old cars that never had so many problems.

No significant problems yet, but just waiting to see what happens due to past brand experiences.
2003 4dr SUV 210-horsepower 3.7L V6

The front ball joints had to be replaced. Air conditioning went out. Front brakes have a short life.

Catalytic converter failed after just 35k miles. Had a couple of transmission issues, although they were covered by the 7 years powertrain warranty.
