Other than a cracked manifold, I have not had major repairs. One single rust spot. I painted myself and covered with a cheap rocker panel. It actually improved the appearance and practically looks new. Hard to believe it's 10 years old.
Affordable adventure. Looks good on the road and runs good off the road. Good heat in winter even with soft top. Love to take the top down in the summer!
I replaced my 10-year-old soft top recently. Still lets water in. Doesn't bother me much though.
