"Still on the original engine and transmission. No major mechanical issues in 15 years. Will be replacing it soon because its very difficult to get a child in a rear-facing seat in the back. Otherwise has been an excellent vehicle!"

"Only issue is it is a bit rough on the ride side due to its short wheelbase. If you are on bad asphalt or concrete roads it jostles you around pretty good. Comfort is great for me and I like being able to park about anywhere due to it's size. Car sized without making you feel like your rump is just above the roadway."
