This a good vehicle. If would be very good except for a few items. 1.) Sometimes takes several miles to switch out of 4 wheel drive (up to 20). 2.) The fuel level transmitter went faulty at about 53K (1.5 yrs). 3.) The front wheel bearing sounds like it is going bad. It was the best vehicle for the money when I bought it and if you want a lot of power and don't mind the poorer gas mileage, this car is for you. The seats on the base model are not that comfortable. I would highly recommend this vehicle for college students going off to college.
Power! Great acceleration! Handles very well off road and in the snow.
More comfortable seating. Fix problem with time delay when taking transmission out of 4 wheel drive. Try to improve gas mileage without giving up power (if possible).
