I bought my Amigo brand new in September of 1991. It is still running with 265K miles on it. Original engine, nothing major has ever gone wrong with it. Changed a few clutches, a starter, alternator, an exhaust - nothing more then your standard "wear and tear". My wife is waiting for it to die so I can buy a new vehicle but it keeps on running. It has great 4 wheel drive capability and has weathered sever winters. I would happily pay another $12k for 18 years of driving w/o major issues in a heartbeat. This has been a great vehicle!
I bought this car brand new and still have it. I have repainted the car, change the head gasket, change clutch, change the exhaust, and put a 3 inch body lift. Overall the car hasn't had to many problems. Engine still runs great.

I had an Amigo for about two years and
I should have done a buyers check
first before I bought it! I had a
flywheel/starter problem that made me
have to pop the clutch many times in
order for it to start. It rode rough,
got average gas milage for an SUV and
I wanted my old car back again! The
oil pressure dropped to the point that
the oil light would come on every once
in a while because, as I found out
when I sold it, one of the cylinders
had water in it. You do not have to be
a mechanic to know that this is not
good news! The soft top is tough to
get on and off (try it before you buy
it), and not really worth the trouble.
This was probably my last SUV.
