In 5 years and 130K miles I have replaced both front hub assemblies, two fuel pumps, heater core, whole AC system, tie rod ends,radiator, alternator, many sets of brake pads, and none of it is cheap!! Also, the seat back handle broke, the lights on the steering wheel and doors failed, the visor mirror lights quit, I have no floor heat, and my 4WD won't engage. $7000+ in repairs over 5 years! It is comfortable to drive and the engine is a runner, but the other components are pure junk. What a disappointment. 19 MPG is not too great at $3.00 per gallon. Never again!
Appearance is OK and it is fun to drive when it's not in the shop, which is about every 90 days. Easy to shift in and out of 4WD and it is great in the snow. Easy to corner and park. Lots of room in the back for cargo. Lots of cubbyholes for storage of small stuff.
Quality of product! Too many trips to the shop causes people to buy Toyotas next time...like I will!
