In just over two years of ownership and
over 100k miles, one word sums it up,
RELIABLE. Engine has always averaged
19.1 mpg according to the trip
computer. Not bad for a big 6 cyl. and
a vehicle with the aerodynamics of a
brick, but hey, it's all part of the
charm!! Other than oil changes, 1 set
of tires, 1 brake job, and replacing
the transfer case at 171,000 miles this
thing starts and goes every day without
fail. It's Simple Design makes for a
very dependable AND easy to maintain
vehicle even for the novice mechanic.
Select-Trac 4wd option-A Must! Deep
Tinted glass keeps the leather cool in
those summer months. Strong Factory
CD/cass. audio system. Tons of Cargo
space too, especially with the rear
seat folded down. Simple yet Classic
looks. Nice, Durable Paint.
Hood Release mechanism (Not unlike a
Rube Goldberg Contraption) if not
regularly lubricated it will cease and
you WILL rip the release handle from
the cable while trying to pop the hood.
Brakes lock easily when cold and
moisture-goes away quickly from driving
