I purchased this vehicle July 2004, and it has been a great vehicle. I purchased the vehicle with 73,000 miles on it, and it now has over 170,000 miles on it. The only problems I have had were with the brakes, because of exposure to the elements. Besides this I have had no problems. I use Mobile 1 synthetic oil, so tried to maintain it. Word of advice when you need to replace oxygen sensor do so immediately otherwise you may have to pay in the long run. I did not change mine for almost a year and it made other problems arise, but not till now, so I think this has been a great vehicle. If you find one used purchase it as soon as possible.
Loved the power. Gave me plenty of power to get where I needed to go.
Improve handling and traction. Brand new tires and still not able to go well in the rain. Also, MPG was not great. Avg 22 mpg. On a great day maybe 24, but horrible MPG.
