Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"This car has lasted for a ridiculously long, strenuous amount of time. At 309,500 miles, ours shows few signs of stopping and has required little maintenance to get there. In 14 years of owning this car it has left us stranded once. The transfer case has needed to be completely replaced twice but the car was always able to drive home with the destroyed ones."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10

"Best car I've ever owned. Brake system for this year is unheard of. 127,000+ miles and I still have 50% brakes in rear and 75% in front brake pads. Don't believe me? Ask a qualified mechanic regarding this vehicle year brake system. Never broken down except dead battery with regular maintenance. 4 wheel drive with a push of a button. Tows my ultra light trailer in 7,000+ altitude. Not getting rid of this SUV anytime soon."

"I bought this new in 2002, put about 20k miles per year on it with no major issues. It is a road warrior, capable of hauling 4-5 hunters and all of their gear with ease. With seats folded/removed, it hauls more stuff than a pick up truck. I love this vehicle and when it is tiime to replace it I will buy another one."
