I bought this to tow my 30' boat. It does a great job! It is tough and reliable. It makes a good family vehicle with DVD and 3rd row seating. Lots of room.
At 12MPG city, it will not pass a gas station. I find myself opting for our smaller car for quick trips to the store as I get tired of putting gas in it's 28 gallon tank.
I would not trade it for anything else when it comes to towing or long trips.
