I bought my D in Jan of 2000. It has
performed as well as I hoped.
Maintenance needs have been low. I have
changed the oil regularly & replaced
the battery. That's it other than
the "scheduled" maintenance
needs. The anit-lock brake feature I
opted for paid for itself at around the
one year mark. On the freeway at
highway speeds the traffic suddenly
came to a halt. I hit the brakes and
the D actually stopped before hiting
the guy in front of me. I have been
very happy with the reliability and
performance of my D since day one. It
is comfortablt to ride in and my wife
hates going back to the car when I take
the D for some reason.
4x4, anti-lock brakes, Power, comfort
Upgrading the luxury of the interior
appointments would be a nice touch.
