I really like this vehicle and off road in canyons and roadless areas, it's incredible. However, the gas mileage could be much better. It's engine is pretty powerless on hills and the seats could use a bit more ergonomic design. But, overall, it's a fun SUV to own and drive. With improvements to reflect today's driving issues, I would buy another one.
Rugged and tough either on paved roads, in town or off road. Very reliable.
Seat design, engine power and, definitely gas mileage. This vehicle would make a wonderful hybrid.
