Pleased, this old trooper runs excellent.


Air condition went out six months after I bought the car.

Wheel bearings front axle replaced.

Front bucket seats recovered.

General Comments:

The four wheel drive function excellent. I have done fifty per cent off road. Never been stuck yet. Hills and mud.

Seats are hard and needed extra cushions.

Minimal power up hills on main roads. Lacks power.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
