Summary:

Best car I've ever owned

Faults:

Had the engine replaced at 175000 miles, not because I had to, but because I had the opportunity to put in a bigger engine.

Had the exhaust redone at 190000.

Just had the ABS lines replaced at 200000.

General Comments:

Best Car I've ever owned! If I need to go and get lumber, I fold down the back seat and it fits in the car.

Great for taking trips with the kids who love the third row "gunner's seat".

Great Ride and handling, I was even able to tweak it to get 19 mpg city and 28 mpg highway.

Summary:

Great ride, user friendly and the last of the big rides

Faults:

Not really anything major. I added just a little oil to the crank case.

General Comments:

Fantastic ride, handles well with tight steering. I would love to have just a little better fuel mileage, but I am happy with it considering the weight and size.

If you're looking for comfort, this is the only way to go.
