Exceent SUV, if you take a little care of it:
First of all change to Bilsteins - it will change your driving experience 180 degrees.
Second, if you over 100K change timing belt, all other belts; watter pump, termostat.
Third, make sure your brakes are good.
Now you have a fantastic car - you have to invest a bit - but then you have a true 4x4 that will go anywhere, will start any time, and will drive and feel like brand new.
Or much better than many brand new cars, suvs in the $20K range.
My wife wants me to change my car to twice more expensive and more cool - I love this SUV - I put some sweat to it and it is perfect now!
4x4 drivability is excelent
can do a lot of DIY
