Pros: "It never lets me down."

Cons: "Not superfast takeoff."

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

"I purchased this vehicle brand new with 3 miles on the odometer. I also got the 10 yr bumper to bumper warranty. This car does not have a super quick take off but ive had it up to 130 mph. Bet it would have gone faster but was afraid of the ticket. I have had it on many jeep only trails off road, long road trips across the country day to day city commute and just sitting idling for hours. I have had to put very little into the car for parts or repairs. My car is the one vehicle on the road regardless of conditions. Ive towed a 4x4 1998 dodge ram 2500 numerous times across town and it doesn't feel like im pulling anything. When the big 4x4 trucks get stuck in the snow I am the one pulling it out. there is not anyplace mud snow rivers that has stopped me yet in it. everything in the interior is very logically placed. I am 5'4" and my little brother is 6'5" and we both fit comfortably in any seat in the car. Plenty of leg room everywhere even in the back seat with the drivers seat pushed all of the way back. Easy to drive and have a hard time getting it to slide when I want too ie empty icy parking lots. Excellent traction everywhere. Love the car. Would buy it all over again in a heartbeat."

"I purchased this car in Dec.2002. It has never left me stranded,or disappointed for any reason. Lived in snow country & found the 4WD worked great. All in all I hate to get rid of it afraid I won't get another one that meets my expectations."
