"This SUV is a work horse and never says die, if you do the servicing that is. Low maintenance, and comfort with the luxury of 1998. Handles well and is fun to drive, especially in the snow or on a winding road to nowhere. I could go on but, suffice to say a good value, fun to drive and reliable to boot."
"This has been a good quality, solid vehicle. No major problems so far. Only drawback has been it is a little underpowered - this is earlier version before horsepower was increased
mid year. Otherwise good SUV."
"possibly be repaired. It has brand new Michelin tires and interior in good condition for a 16 year old car no rips or tears in leather seats. I have most if not all receipts for all work done on car. I also have a set of 18" chrome wheels with Michelin tires but chrome needs some elbow grease to remove tarnish from when wheels were kept in my shed over the winter."
"I do really like my car - but don't love it. Because I have my history of Toyota's to compare to... and Nissan/Infiniti cars seem to nickle and dime you, not consistently - but enough to annoy you. From AC compressors to constantly changing headlights to the gas exterior cover bending - and now not fitting... it's annoyances.
But the engine, the luxury feel, and the ride -- amazing."
Cons: "Gas mileage and smoothness of transmission"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9
"It has always been a gas hog best ever 23 mpg worst 14 mpg, transmission has always jerked between 1st and 2nd. The bottom line is I would keep it but maintenance is beginning to become more frequent and I am not getting any younger and cannot have fun working on it. Hate to see it go."
"I bought it used. I have had it for 7 years. It has been very reliable. I had some repairs that previous owners had neglected but it was not a factory issue. It has been a much better car than the 2006 BMW 330ci that we bought and had to dump at 100,000 miles."
