I bought the car for my wife at some used car place in Jan 04. I was forced to replace the starter and belts in Nov 07, and a pulley in Dec 07. Other than that all work was routine maintenance or by choice. I have taken the car on (3) 2,000 mile round trips to CO without a problem. I have also taken the car on some pretty serious four wheeling trips for a stock car and it also did extremely well. The 4 wheel dive does great on the roads too, I drove over Vail & Eisenhower pass in a blizzard at 55 mph with ease!
The clock being in the gauge cluster. The fold down rear seats.
Cup holders, better fuel economy and take the AM antenna out of the windshield! The car is sort of top heavy but expected from an SUV. Placement of oil filer when changing it leaks all over the starter.
