The only SUV worth a salt
Let's see... the previous owner didn't really do a good job of taking care of this car. There were problems when I bought it: the notorious "hot-start" problem with the solenoid overheating and not working, the radiator was leaking, the water pump bearings were bad, the air filter had never been replaced (ever!), the plugs were shot, the drive shaft sheared into two pieces, the alternator failed, the cooling system hoses blew apart...
It's still a great truck. Stock suspension and it handles 31" tires well enough to take it off-road. Mechanically, the engine is easy to work on and easy to diagnose if there's a problem. Parts are easy and inexpensive to obtain.
Owning a Scout is all warm fuzzies, I tell ya.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
