General Comments:

This is the 3rd Rodeo I have owned, but the first in the TF series.

The motor is strong and loves hard work.

I miss the comfort of a Commodore, but this vehicle has been great for the tasks it was designed for... WORK.. It carries a load no worries, but a bit more power would be nice.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
