Does the job!

ReviewI leased it about 2 1/2 years ago and just bought out the lease. It is not beautiful nor is it elegant, but it does the job. I live at the end of a dirt road in Vermont with a daily round-trip commute of about 50 miles. It always starts and it makes it through the deep snow, better than our Toyota 4Runner. Even with my canoe on top, it handles okay--not as well as my old Morgan +4 but that wouldn't have made the grade in Vermont. Runs much better with a little extra air in the tires. All in all, I find it practical, serviceable, and reliable. This is contrary to some of the other reviews but maybe I just got a good one--or they got bad ones.
Best FeaturesGood room inside, roomy enough for the dog plus "stuff." Great in the snow, with only all-season tires. Good MPG. Reliable.
Worst FeaturesCould use better brakes; they don't last, even though I don't use them much.
