My aunt bought the car new in late '92, then sold it to my grandfather in '99, and he then gave it to me as my first car. The car now has 220K miles on it. I've only had to replace the valve gasket and the brake booster. I don't think I've ever driven a more reliable car. I haven't taken very good care of it, I know the rest of my family abused it, but it still keeps running. I'm now considering selling it to pay for repairs on my Volvo S60. I wished I would have just invested money in fixing up my Jeep instead of buying the Volvo.
For an SUV, the driver comfort is great. With the leather, you tend to slide a little in the seat though. Maybe larger side bolsters?
The computer went on the fritz at 200K miles. It says doors are open when they're not, the 4WD switch needs repair when it doesn't, the coolant level is low when it's full, and it made the compass/mini computer quit working. Make the repairs for that cheaper!
