I own a 2002 (same as 2004) and I
really like it. The redone styling
lured me in, but it has been it's
reliabilty that compells me to write a
This is not car. The ride is not
harsh ... more bouncy. However it does
just fine on the highway and great in
sand dirt or rain.
It stores a lot more stuff than you'd
think and holds more than the lil SUVs
like the CRV or RAV4. I prefer it's
styling to the Ford Escape. The Ford
has had a few reliablity problems.
More tough looking and acting than a
Mazda Tribute. Not the best gas
milage ... I get about 20mpg.
