Review
Although this vehicle takes a bad review from Edmunds, I found the vehicle comfortable, stable and fun to drive. In fact, I have owned three Sports all in seccession. The most recent had every option except the sunroof. I swapped the stock recall tires with Michelin MTX and one size larger. The 4x4 system had major limitations, not being able to run on dry, semi-wet pavement, i.e. rain. Overall, I would highly recommend this vehicle. It had good ride height, versatile interior and look rugged with its two door layout.
Favorite Features
Powerful engine, smooth highway ride, good driving feel, commanding view and presence. Very stable towing a 3,000lb U-Haul trailer across the country.
Suggested Improvements
No cassette player, fuel pump died at 30K miles and thermostat broke at 25K. The fuel pump left me stranded which needed a tow to the dealer. Improve basic reliability. Scandalous tire situation. Bad rap.
