ReviewI also have the check engine light problem with the cruise control light blinking (and the cruise control itself non-functioning). The dealer knows about it but so far hasn't come up with a solution yet. Mileage is excellent; between 25 and 27 mpg overall in mixed driving with Interstate speeds close to80 mph. Gas mileage gets a lot worse from 70 to 80mph; probably the price one pays for the high clearance. The engine gets a little bit noisy at speeds over75 mph. With the 5-speed manual, power is adequate, but nothing special. I can imagine this to be worse with the automatic.
Best FeaturesHigh clearance, solid build quality, many desirable items are standard: driver's side lumbar support, front and side airbags
Worst FeaturesA few more horsepower wouldn't hurt, less engine noise at highway speeds, offer anti-slip control as an option on all models
