No 8 off the production line for year 2000. Got it in Dec 1999. We had our first repair at 145,000, the hydraulic shifter, it's a stick shift. Runs great and we are at 155,000+ now. Seat fits my wife fine but a little small for me though we both can drive despite the difference in height. It is noisy, but the best vehicle We have ever had. The all wheel drive is a big plus. typically get 24-25 miles to the gallon.
Reliablity. and over the road view. Looks nice.
Cup holders are worthless. Needs a little more window tinting. Minor stuff. Soft wheel cover tears easily. Make it a litle quieter.
