I have had this car for 7 + years and 82,000 miles. I have replaced tires and battery, but no problems, except starting to get a few rattles. Runs great. I like the styling of this car and it's comfortable ride. I want to upgrade some of the features like keyless entry, variable speed intermittent wipers, fog lights, and some other comfort items, but I don't like the design of the newer models. They lose out on looks and don't have AWD. My choice seems to be enjoy this car until it doesn't run any more and live without the perks, or change to a new kind of car altogether.
Fun to Drive. Great visibility and turning radius. Never gotten stuck in the snow. Perfect size for me (6 foot 3, 225 lbs)
The fabric on the driver's arm rest rubs my elbow raw. The storage spaces in the driver's area seem to be just the wrong size, shallow and narrow. The tonneau cover is great, but there needs to be a light under it.
