I bought my 4D Sidekick from a
rental agency with 21000 miles on it.
In a few months I started having
engine problems. The spark plug
wires were bad but it was fixed under
a recall. Since then I have had no
problems, other than the
transmission does not want to come
out of Park if I have driven the car just
a couple miles w/o some wrangling.
But I have 144K on it and it is
extremely dependable. Interior is
cheap, the doors sound tinny and it
needs some more HP, but almost
no rust and I have never spent a
dime on anything outside of normal
wear and tear. Great little car for the
$13K I paid for it!
Lot of cargo room with the back
seats down, very reliable, great AC,
low cost, 4WD works as expected.
Horsepower, elbow room, back
seats seem cramped (but I am the
only one who drives it!).
