I bought this car with over 100,000
miles and it has not had any major
problems. In the past year I replaced a
bad thermostat ($7), a inside door
handle ($12), and recently an air idle
control sollonoid is going out ($104).
The fuel economy is my biggest
annoyance, at 15 mpg for most short
trips around the area. But, it also has
gotten a little over 20 mpg on some
longer freeway trips. Overall, it's not
a bad vehicle. Also very sure-footed in
snow in 4x4 mode.
4x4, rear visibility, fold down 2/3
bench seat in back.
Better fuel economy and more torque
(V6), better speakers.
