Advice: If comfortHave Owned it one year. 1. More comfortable and a better overall ride than my previous vehicle, a 1999 Cadillac Deville. 2. There is only one serious flaw and it is consistant with most GM pickups and SUV's the fan housing for the HVAC needs to be moved further into the engine compartment and out of the way of the passenger. At worst GM could take some space from the glove box and give the people more space.
