Extraordinary performance and quality. The best vehicle I have ever owned. Bought it new and have had this 2000 model since winter of 1999.
Have close to 200,000 miles! I will keep this truck forever. Have a couple of rust spots, which I sprayed rust remover, sanded it off, and painted it. My truck still looks like new with some minor dents. I keep up with the maintenance: oil, lubes, tires, tune-ups, etc. I enjoy off-roading out in the country.
I love the 4X4, exterior syle, interior design, storage behind the backseats, and the small, but effective engine.
Too noisy on the highway; wind and engine noise in the cabin is louder than most vehicles. Roof rack is useless - only hinders the aerodynamics of the body. Hood needs to lift up high enough toward the windshield to improve aerodynamics and hide the windshield wipers.
