This vehicle is very reliable, 104k miles on it and runs like new. The most notable thing about this vehicle is how stable it is, note that this is an older generation SUV without stability control or other systems. It looks like it would have bad handeling given its size but it dosn't. Also the turning radius is outstanding. It does lack some key features like auto climate control and a sunroof.
Handeling, very good reliability ,exhaust note, unique exterior design, its 6 years old and people still stare.
Some small rattles can be fixed, but no big problem, the newer model fixed all the issues of the previous generation.
