I bought this vehicle in 02, with
60000 miles. I now have 75,000 miles
on it and it is still running strong.
The only big repair that I have done
was had the A/C Compressor replaced
and that was only $800. The former
owner bought it new and had the oil
replaced every 3,000 miles, as I stil
do. The engine is not quite powerful
enough for me, but it is a reliable
vehicle. I would suggest this vehicle
to anyone who wants a reliable, fun to
drive, and basic SUV.
Leather seating surfaces... very
Simple towing package... right on the
A better A/C system
A more powerful engine
Possibly offer a V8 as is offered in
My wife purchased it in '92, and I
begain driving it in '99 when we met.
It had a tranny rebuild at 94K miles
(has 114K now), but I hear that's
typical. Performance improved when the
Air Flow Meter was cleaned (not
replaced) recently. We just drove it
1000 miles from LA to Utah and back,
120+ degrees in the desert, A/C
blasting, stereo cranked, loaded with
camping gear, ran cool & smooth.
