Love this little SUV that we bought used. Do not have to climb up and in, nor have to lower oneself in - a boost for those of us w/ creaky knees. Zippy, 4WD when it suited us (birding) quick and easy. But the AC has died and the estimate is just under $1000.00! In So AZ can't live w/out AC so we will have to trade it in on... what?
4WD is easy to get in and out of (in the past, had hubs we had get out and turn). Comfortable enough although suspension a little harsh. Actually amazing amount of room for stuff, just need to be clever in arrangement.
A bit more durable in the AC dept. Design under the hood so that condenser is easily replaced, thus lowering labor costs!
