Summary:

Good value for money and a good drive

Faults:

Too new to have had any faults.

General Comments:

The seat is incredibly comfortable, even for a short person, and the "birds eye" view is great for avoiding the potholes.

I definitely appreciate the air conditioning, power wing mirrors and rear windscreen wiper. 2 cars ago I had a 18 year old Jimny, but it was very basic compared to this.

I anticipate that this will be my car for the next 10 years as it is a good solid vehicle.

5 years and a week later all of the above comments stand. An excellent manoverable vehicle. As it is a manual, it is very economical to run and tackles the hills as if you've given it a birthday present.

I particularly like the fact that you can go into 4WD as you are moving along, if under 60km/h which is useful when the heavy rains hits you.

I wouldn't be using 4wd high on the road, even in wet conditions.. will cause transmission windup. Maybe in flooded conditions or wet gravel, but not on a rainy road. Part time 4wd, not AWD.
