"I bought this 8 yrs ago and the 2nd year of ownership I had to shell out $2200 for wiring harness at a dealer. The car loves the highway and the cold weather. Ran great. Unfortunately the past 3 years I have been plagued with electrical problems. Expensive repairs. The latest is all lights work with the exception of illumination (running lights, speedometer) Repeated $$ efforts to correct this have failed, I don't want to but I have to get rid of it. Too bad!! Other than a lot of rust and the previous mentioned issues this car was GREAT."
"I bought this car for $1,500.00 and it has been worth every penny I put in it. I cant believe it was only that much. I have had it for about 6 years and it never fails. Ever. The only problem I have had with it is the power windows work kinda weird. One doesnt work. But it has Air so no problem. Love the car."
Pros: "decent gas mileage, very reliable, easy to work on"
Cons: "rough ride, parts hard to find, not many rust free"

"this was my daily driver for 4 years now. never EVER been stuck. one of the most reliable vehicles i have ever owned. highway mileage was well above epa estimates. i own a 6cyl 5 speed 4wd model. 22hwy/17city. only parts replaced due to failure were the 4wd vacuum switches and front pass window regulator. was used originally as my daily driver. i bought a beater car and this became my toy hauler. at 165k i changed my timing belt and water pump only because i was nervous that it would eventually need it since the mileage was getting up there. never broke down in the 60k miles i have owned it. great for the snow also! when considering this truck to purchase, i also looked at the nissan pathfinder, mitsubishi montero, and toyota 4runner of about the same model year. chose the rodeo due to it had the most power from the factory to tow with and everything else was just an added bonus."
