Average to Good

ReviewGenerally a good vehicle. I would improve the speakers (start failing after 6 yrs), the dash lights go out, and the console material cracks. The car is good for utility use and handles bad weather nicely. Feels like the mileage could be better given the engine size. Program for fuel injection may not be optimized. I get better mileage running the AC than without.
Best FeaturesGreat for getting a start in heavy snow or mud. The 4WD really makes a difference.
Worst FeaturesBlender door for AC/Heat fails early in the life of the vehicle. Expensive to replace the part because of location inside dash. Transfer case failed at 100,000. I would like to be able to turn off the 4WD. In snow if you accelerate around a curve it will occasionally kick on causing a fishtail!
