I've owned my pathy for almost 10 years now; bought it used in 2000 from a guy who babied it. I've treated it pretty harsh.. lot's of offroading excursions and suspension damage. But the pathy always seems to survive... I can't seem to kill it. The only major repairs I've done are suspension (most likely my fault) and I had to replace the clutch hydraulics at 140,000 miles.
I love the way this thing looks. I like to thing its timeless future-retro offroad styling. It also handles well offroad to boot.
The adjustable suspension doesn't really work as advertised. The offroad capability is a trade for on-road comfort. Not everybody that gets in thinks the seats are comfortable. Closing the doors sounds like you're dropping a tin can. The exhaust manifold leaks like crazy and is un-fixable.
