I bought mine with 64,000 miles on it. It now has 112,000 and is still going strong. Overall dependability has been very good, just regular maintenance. Yes, it's loud, mileage is pretty bad & the back seat could be more comfortable, but it's also very practical. Love it ! And, it never feels like it's going to tip over, like other SUV's. I don't have any modifications made - all stock. I never thought I could have this much fun in an SUV !
The HANDLING! Off road capabilities. Lots of space inside.
