If you’re looking for a SUV that you can actually take off road then this is your vehicle. Mine has 45,000 miles and has had no major problems. The ride is a little stiff but makes up for it in off road capability. The interior leaves a little to be desired. Engine seems a little sluggish when trying to pass at highway speeds but more than capable for around town driving. Towing capability is pretty impressive for this class vehicle.
Exterior styling. Rear seats have plenty of leg and headroom thanks to the stepped roof.
Inetrior styling and weak engine need to be uprgaded (problem solved in the 2002 model).
