This vehicle has been the primary people mover for our family of six. It has towed our 2000 lb tent trailer all over North America. We probably run over the 3500 lb recommended towing capacity. We bought it used with 60 km and it currently has 180 km. In that time we have only done routine maintenance and replaced consumables (tire, brake pads). This vehicle has been run right at the limits of what is recommended and hasn't given us a spot of trouble.
