So Obama is offering the cash for clunkers giveaway and it qualifies. We've owned this standard shift model for 15 years and 225000 miles, same strong engine, one replaced transmission and for the last 5 years an on road/off road car for a college student. Same son learned an important lesson, they go but don't stop in snow, but take an amazing licking so we put a front clip on it 7 years ago. Paint still shiny and consumes a bit of oil. Not sure he wants to give it up even for 4500 Obamabucks, not if they crush it he says, it deserves better. Honestly the clutch has been tedious but even the AC blows cold with no service on it ever. Can't say that about my Z71 pickup.

Have owned this vehicle for 12 years and have put over 200k miles on it. Liked driving it from day one and still do; lots of room, plenty of power, very comfy, great visibility. Especially good in winter; 4wd, heated seats, headlight washers, heated mirrors & rear window. Very easy on tires; over 70k a set. The transmission is weak and have rebuilt it twice (sourced from GM!). Have also replaced a starter, master cylinder, and power steering pump. The rest has all been maintenance items. Starting to get some rust now so am looking at a later model!

The body is tough, it withstands all weather. The exterior is plush and comfortable and durable. Reliability is good it can put alot of miles on and still maintain performance,with minor to major flaws in the system. The fuel econmony is great if your vehicle is in pretty good shape. It is fun to drive. The overall performance is good.
