"Its a fun car for year round driving with the 4 wheel drive. Almost like a jeep without the price tag! It's not plush but it has been reliable mechanically. The O2 sensor went out and it was about $200 to replace and took 3 days to get the part, but this isn't my primary car so I didn't really care. I get about 23 in town, which is above average so compared to my V8 Denali, I'm very happy."
