I wanted something simple with a low
overall cost of ownership. So far so
good with 9000 miles on the odometer. 4
cylinder is peppy and 5 speed
transmission is nicely matched. Mileage
is 23 MPG in mixed driving. A/C really
sucks the power-I turn it off when I
need some speed. Interior is nice.
Exterioe styling is great.
Made in the USA-I like the idea of
keeping those 5800 Americans working
hard in Smyrna, TN.
XE Value package was just that-a real
value. CD player, bedliner, carpet,
jump seats, alloy wheels, etc.
Somehow I ended up with the beefier
C200 rear axle (3.90 ratio), normally
found in the 4 cylinder 4x4 models.
Suspension is horrible! Might as well
throw it away, call one of the
aftermarket companies and start over.
