A true 4x4 (like a Land Rover)
Gear lever rattling noise when the clutch is depressed.
Gear knob loose, dealer promised a replacement but they went bankrupt!
Center muffler replaced 3 times (rattle).
Front left power seat motor spoiled, cost 2000 Malaysian dollars to replace.
Can smell exhaust fumes from that 2-stroke motor-bike in front of me with the air-conditioning switch on.
Clutch makes a squeaking sound when depressed.
Can only reach 130 km/h tops.
Recently, a loud knocking sound from front right wheel on gravel roads.
They have stopped assembling/importing JEEP over here because Japanese products are more reliable, cheaper to maintain compared to JEEP and LAND ROVER although they more expensive to buy.
Comfort, good handling. High cornering limit for a 4X4 (just like a car), I can beat that Proton Saga on uneven winding road!
Design still attractive, high stance/low roof line, spare wheel inside, full size rear hatch. You don't find such things in a Japanese 4X4.
Heavy clutch, light throttle pedal, big front seats. Rear door and legroom too small.
Engine is sluggish below 3000RPM, and there is a lot of mechanical noise underneath (acceptable for a car design from the 80s).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
