Purchased in November of 2001, I love
the car. It is great driving in snow
or ice, all four wheels keep you going
straight as an arrow. The AWD feels
cool around corners too, you can feel
the weight shift and the gripping tires
rail you around the corner, it's
Fuel economy disappoints at 21 in city,
24 on highway. I have the manual
tranny, its fun to use. The back
window defroster is weak, takes forever
to defrost. Otherwise, solid
manufacturing, should last 200,000
miles i hope.
The AWD system is incredible. Peppy
engine, reliable car.
Would love to get 25 to 30 in gas
mileage. Put wiper on back window
since defroster is weak. The sponge
circles in the drink holders allow dirt
and crumbs to get caught down there.
