I bought this vehicle as a replacement for my 1994 Jeep Wrangler in December 2002. I was attracted by the fact it was a car and a truck and it's all wheel drive. So far the only major problem was the battery went flat about a year ago for no apparent reason.
Its all wheel drive will allow it go anywhere. The bed although small has been very useful. Stereo is very good.
Plastic (inside and out) is poor quality and scratches easily. Plastic trim has faded badly. Would have been nice to have left the body cladding and steel roll bars off and made the bed a few inches wider to accommodate a piece of 4X8 sheet of plywood. Clutch is quirky.
