I've only had my Borrego a few months. I have a LX 4x4 V6. I have to say the V6 has some power and is fast. I catch myself speeding all the time. The V8 must be a rocket. We average around 20mpg mixed HWY and CITY driving. I haven't had it off road so I cant verify how it is. Seems to be good in the snow so far.
