Summary:

Lots of fun for wrench turners

Faults:

Transfer case (2) 1 was replaced before the recall (Mfg reimbursed me the cost) 1 was after the recall - dealer paid for service.

General Comments:

Overall been a very good car. Transfer case has been an issue (both when out when I was driving) but to all that own this car; it's a know shortcoming and can be replaced via safety recall notice.

HUGE after-market support - very easy to upgrade almost anything performance wise. Just do a search on the web and see!

Only drive it when the weather gets really bad (about 2,000 miles a year) but still purrs like a kitten!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

I wasn't aware vehicles without 4x4 had transfer cases...

Until the advent of the transfer case, all 4WD vehicles transfered power to the front wheels via magic, hopes, and dreams.
