Cons: "wind resistant of major highways is the worst"
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"Bought used from car lot with 130,000 miles on it. After 5 years and 50,000 miles on it; we find it hard to let go off. This 4x4 goes better in snow than a Jeep Liberty we used to have & the Ford F250 we have now. The gas efficiency of this vehicle makes it hard to not keep. The canvas top we replaced our self. The interstate driving of 70 mph makes it hard to keep up when wind speeds are high for our area. But for basic family and work transportation for all weather seasons it is nice. We flip the convertible top off in summer and have hauled bicycles, lumber, and fishing poles for many trips and home improvement projects. We have had to replace the water pump and heater core. But the rest has never gave us any problem. Keep good tires and gas in it and it's hard to find this mechanical and gas value in anything. We have looked because we are considering upgrade because of its age. But honestly, it will be a hard day to turn it loose if or when we do."
"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."
