Has been fairly reliable for the 9 years we owned it. Heard some "clunking" while breaking at slow speeds occasionally which mechanic and dealer could never isolate. Recently, we had a radiator fluid leak from the manifold intake which a radiator sealant "fixed". Then even more recently, the 4WD hubs in the front started making noise so my mechanic removed them. Body developed very little rust throughout life, just alittle under the doors. Would recommend these cars!
Plenty of space in back for packing the car for vacation!
Center console folding arm rest broke off and I replaced it. Looking at design, I don't understand why it didn't brake earlier. Front brakes wear quickly, I use heavy-duty pads now.
