This was my second car, and it was the best thing a kid could have. It's 4x4 system got me anywhere and everywhere I wanted to go, places that none of my friends could get to. Loyal, trustworthy, and a real blast. And by real blast, I mean literally. Going over a mountain pass, it threw a rod. Unfortunately replacing the engine would cost as much as the car was worth, so I had to part with it. I researched if this was a regular problem, and to no avail. This was a fluke. It was a great vehicle and only wearing parts had to be replaced. I would get another in good condition in a heart beat.
4x4, good engine, good transmission, strong frame, good suspension, tailgate system rather than hatch I preferred, all around good car with a lot of utility.
Coulda done with better gas mileage, would appreciated it if the engine didn't blow up
