This suv is fun to drive, has plenty of room. It's a bit noisy, but way less than any truck I've owned. Bought it with the miles of 2006 (as an '04 in 2008), and am very happy with it.
awd, abs, alloy wheels, folding seats, stick is very responsive. Slows well with downshifting, tires are not the ones that came originally, so that appears to be a plus. Same MPG as my 4 cyl 2001 Honda Accord, which is great. (even with the $4/gal gas!) Could do better nowadays, tho.
Based on other reviews, I'll be needing a new A/C compressor soon (39,000 miles so far) Other than that, I'd make the seats a bit more comfortable. No way to open the back door (even with keyless?!?) without using the key?
