I bought this bad boy used in late 1995
with 38k on it. While it has never
left me stranded or failed to start, it
ha been a money pit for the last few
years with $1500-2000 per year going
towards major repairs. I just found out
today it needs new brakes (again) and
about $800 in engine work. I told the
shop to do the brakes and forget the
rest. I plan on just keeping the oil
changed and some new plugs until the
thing wants to run no longer, which may
be soon. While it has been a fun car,
I would not buy another one due to the
poor build quality and repair expense.
I would not recommend a used one as a
purchase unless you posses mechanical
abilities and can do major repairs on
Great off road and in snow. Powerful
engine, nice ride, still a good looking
vehicle even almost 10 yrs later.
