I bought the '99 used in 2004. I've been driving for almost 2 years now and no problems! (clock wire is loose, no biggie). Still has great pickup, especially in 1st and 2nd gears! 4WD is great in the snow. One of the best riding/reliable vehicles I've ever owned. This sucker will run to 200k miles without a doubt (currently only at 60k).
Reliablitity, decent body style for an SUV. Comfortable and responsive. NO MAINTENANCE BILLS!!!
