You must pay to play

4.8is -
Awesome transmission
Powerful torque monster engine
Great handling for a heavy SUV

Expensive to fix
N62 is a problematic motor as stated before, Valvetronic intermediate levers are a common issue in very cold climate, Valley pan gasket problems occur occasionally, Vent valve problems again in the cold, Air ride can get expensive to repair, If driven easy - secondary air ports will clog

Reality -

Awesome truck to drive, loves abuse but loves maintenance - if you dont take care of it, it will not take care of you. M54 3.0 and N52 3.0 are a bit more forgiving if you forget to maintain it, N62...not so much
