A great off-roading truck
Transfer case motor always seemed to have trouble engaging four-wheel drive. Finally, it completely went at 125,000 miles. Cost about $400 to repair.
Water is leaking from somewhere, a lot on the driver side, but not so much on the passenger side.
Rear defroster won't work and nobody can seem to figure out what's wrong.
Rear main seal cracked... another costly repair.
Anti-lock brakes work occasionally.
This truck is awesome off-road, better than a lot of other trucks I've seen. I'm the person my friends call when they get stuck in the mud or on the beach.
However, the entire truck seems to rattle when you hit a bump. It sounds like the doors are going to fall off and that the dashboard will fall into your lap.
Handles almost as good as a car on the road.
Nice, tight turning radius.
Very loud cabin.
Very roomy, especially with the back seat folded down.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
