I bought this vehicle because I needed something more reliable than my old truck after I wrecked my Jeep. So far, its been pretty good. I took care of a couple of precautionary measures (belts, engine tune, etc.) and had to replace one window motor (easy to do, and it cost me $45). This little vehicle is great, it gets pretty good gas mileage. I love the 4wd on the fly. I have a black one, and recently put on a chrome brush guard and had the windows tinted really dark. This is one mean looking SUV now. I can get it to 45 mph from a dead stop in 50 yards. Great interior layout, and its pretty comfortable. Did I mention it looks cool? Great buy for a used car.

badge, so forget about Honda's
reputation. This should be judged as an

I purchased this vehicle as an
inbetween from an old clunker suv until
I can afford a brand new one. This has
felt like a new car, No mechanical
problems, door locks like to stay down
on the unlock though, and I personally
can't stand the automatic locking doors
as soon as the ignition key is turned!
(took me three times of getting locked
out while motor running to get many
duplicate keys made!) Goes thru 1 qt
oil every 2-3k. Lifters make a bit more
noise than I think they should. But
other than that, It's been a nice car,
Getting ready to look for that Brand
new one soon!
