I bought this former lease vehicle with 36K on it in 2001. 4 weeks in the check eng light comes on. Dealer says too bad & deal with it. But was told that it would not effect engine and it hasnt. This has truly been a great vehicle for me. Has been in the shop 1 time (2002) for a non-wear & tear repair. Replaced the brakes/shocks/struts in 2005 for the only time. Has been paid off for over a year so I have definitely gotten my money's worth. I would buy this vehicle again in a heartbeat. Has definitely been a great experience to own.
Design, reliability, 4x4, wind noise never a problem. Pulls my 2600 lb boat easily.
Gas mileage has always been brutal and should be better than 12-15mpg.
