This car has given me 211,000 miles and counting with minimal maintenance issues. The mileage includes brutal off-roading excursions and dozens of hunting trips. I have had the vehicle break down on me once in 13 years of ownership. You cannot ask for a more reliable vehicle.
Off-road capabilities are unmatched, especially with the manual 4WD.
Adding a rear-locking differential as a standard feature could always help.
