5-spd. Bought with 125K miles, currently at 195K. Extremely reliable- -always starts. Have taken many trips cross country and would feel comfortable driving anywhere in it today. I average 17 mpg if city, 17 mixed and 20 on the hwy. Fairly comfortable seating position. I did 95 mph for a short jaunt the other night and it was comfortable and solid--yes, the engine still had capacity for more. Nice seating position--traffic never seems as bad when your above it. Have towed a trailer(denver-reno and back), various non-running vehicles and quite a few cars out of the deep snow. Am using Goodyear All-Terrain T/A-they work well with the vehicle. Narrow body is great between trees.
Adj. suspension-sport setting makes it very stable down mtn passes. There is only one barely noticable sqeak in the interior--solid construction. Good visibility. UTILITY-put a frig in back once, gate can be left open & tied across to extend cargo room. Alpine deck w/ stock spkrs surprising good.
Turning radius & power. It is what it is: reliable & solid. Won't win you any racing awards no matter how fast you work the gears but you can always count on it to be there for you.
