I love this car
The water pump and timing belt went out at 210.
Transmission seal went out 3 times.
Torque converter was bad when bought the people who fixed it didn't bold it correctly and it cracked in half.
Head had two cracks in it cost 1000 to fix.
Now the thermal valve broke so it runs kind of bad.
It started a mysterious oil leak by oil filter just this last week my mechanic said oil filter gasket was bad I bought a new one it cut leak in half, but not fixed it turned out to be the oil pressure switch right next to it.
My CV joint was destroyed by a rock because I was stupid and drove it off roading w/o a cv boot.
I absolutely LOVE this car even with all of its little problems I think I will never get rid of it.
Heck it has 236k miles on it, but it rides well and is extremely good off-roading heck I pulled out a few of my friends out of mud that I made it through. it take big hills like its nothing. All of my friends love it they wanted to one for themselves. This body style is the best ever. The interior is roomy and seats are comfortable. the only problem I have with it is the expensive part.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
