Must be "hands on" owner!

Now that I've had mine for about 10 months I will say, this is a fantastic vehicle.
To get all the comfort with the rugged of road capability is a true blessing.
The value of these cars "used" is immeasurable.
There is one big caveat to ownership however, that is, you must be a hands on owner.
Must be able to do much of the maintenance and repair work yourself.
also be able to source parts yourself.
If you can do this the vehicle is an incredible value.
If you cant, and must take it to a "qualified" shop when something goes wrong, then your wallet will be drained faster than your gas tank on this bad boy. Get your own hands greasy and be happy!
Interior comfort, reliable engine, parts are readily available from many sources.
Refresh of the vacuum hoses, various engine sensors and a new thermostat will save you much future anguish.
