Very nice vehicle. I've owned plenty of these in the pass and they've all been quite reliable. Of course that's if you can keep it in stock form. The mod bug can come in if you start.
5spd manual AWD drivetrain. DOHC 2.0L turbocharged and intercooled. Very nice set up for some get up and go power without sacrificing driveability. AWD is great in the snow and rain. With snow tires, it's almost unstoppable.
Transmission. Better shifting transmission. Maybe they should've went with the Mitsubishi Evo tranmission or at least the internal parts. The cupholder should've been in a better place. Hate havin to have the arm rest up just to have your drinks stay in place.
