When it was new I got a kick out of it -
fun little car. But now, at 70K miles,
things that should not break are
starting to go. Both rear wheel
bearings had to be replaced, this for a
car that has never been off-road!! The
regulator in one electric window went
belly-up, rear wiper arm broke for no
reason. Conclusion: a good 3-4 year car
if you keep the miles dow.
Nice quality interior, good exterior
paint, great engine and all-wheel drive.
In need of some better quality
secondary mechanical and electrical
parts that can take the load and match
the reliability of the powertrain.
