This car is extreamly reliable. I turned over 128,000 miles with minimal troubles. Nothing costly has gone wrong with it, still on origional engine and tranny. Leaks less than 1/2 a quart of oil a month in its older age,started around 115,000 miles but nothing too costly.
It is very reliable and high quality. Very rugged.
The ride is a little loud on the highway and bumpy around town.
