Not at all worth buying!
1) Engine Overheats - even without the A/C on in summer! I have been told by several mechanics that this is a problem common to this model.
2) Very poor and therefore dangerous brakes.
3) No Pick/acceleration and limited top speed.
4) Jumpy Suspension.
5) Uncomfortable Rear Seats.
6) Horribly low Mileage.
While the car is great off-road in winter (it overheats in summer), a few changes could really have made the car shine. A 5-speed gear box with a relatively bigger diesel engine and less bone-jarring suspension are all things that could make this car shine.
I have also driven the Japan assembled version and that jeep does not overheat,it has good acceleration and braking, and is quite well built.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
