a tall person and good design for off
road without compromizing anything for
on-road use. The car has plenty of
acceleration, however the A/C tends to
bog down the engine a bit. I have

The fog lights give the front of the
car a really agressive look. I think
the whole car is cool, especially if
you get the rear spoiler.
The mat snap on the drivers side has a
nasty habit of coming unsnapped and
