Summary:

Best little 4x4 truck I've ever owned!

Faults:

Nothing so far, just needs a small alignment.

General Comments:

Loved my 91 Amigo so much I bought an 00 model. The only 4x4 that compares to Jeep Wrangler Unlimited edition. Has a lot of nice features too, could'nt beat the price, I was almost going to sign up for an 06 Wrangler Sport, but this was much cooler.

The Amigo Ironman Edition is the rarest one yet. Found that they only made 26 of that model (4wd soft top v6) during the 2000 year.

Summary:

I got a lemon, but it's a darn cute one

Faults:

Wow, um two weeks after buying this car used from a Toyota dealership, the clutch went out. Yep. Somehow my wonder father talked them into paying for the new clutch. At this point, we decided the car was a lemon. It was just bad news. A week and a half after the new clutch, I needed a new battery and some new fuses. 30,000 miles and the darn thing was just causing problem. Then I got a full tuneup and alignment. So far an estimated 2000 on this car I have had for 6 months. Now there is something wrong with my brand new clutch. Something that seems to be yet another reason I despise this car. Everything has gone wrong, the interior is falling apart the ash try keeps popping out,(I dont use it, I opened it once to hold a receipt). The speakers are getting bad. The top is so difficult to remove and replace that its not worth taking it off. I find that in the morning, the car is frozen, and you can't heat up the back window on the soft top, so I have no visibility out of that...Its just not really worth it all.

General Comments:

This car has been nothing, but problems. I love the way it looks, the turning is awesome. I went from a big van to this small car, and its amazing the things you can do, no more 3point turns. It handles great, it's a bit loud, but again, its costly to drive. Gas isn't cheap... ha-ha like you didn't already know that. But so far I am not really happy with my amigo. It's a bad "friend." But the one reason I bought it, was to look cute. I believe without a doubt that this is a chick car. With the top off, rock music blasting, it's the funnest car to drive until something goes wrong and my wallet is again empty.

Summary:

Too much fun, not too much money!!

Faults:

One of the fog lights has a bad seal and is fogged with condensation.

V-6 drinks the gas!

General Comments:

Vehicle only has 2450 miles, initial quality seems to be very good. Looks good and gets a lot of attention.

The V-6 engine is VERY strong and quick, although the gas mileage seems less than average and the engine can be a little noisy under strong acceleration. The transmission is the best shifting automatic that I've driven. Steering is crisp and the handling is good.

It has a kick-butt 6-CD player and 6 speaker system. The ride, feel of quality and major list of options for a low price of less than $22,000?? This sport ute can't be beat!
