This car is still mistaken for a newer car by friends, it is still solid and rides like new. Minimal problems in the last nine years. It has been 100% reliable, never any major problems. Goes through any snow or mud with ease. ABS system works great. Would buy another one and will. 139,000 miles so far.
AWD, sunroofs, cargo net and tray, smooth engine, reliability.
More hp, which has been rectified, and better gas mileage, which is a challenge, I know.
