Not a bad car, and I am generally happy. Will consider a newer model again
A/C condenser cracked (my fault I believe from a minor accident).
Vacuum pump for cruise control/ventilation.
Need to replace brakes/rotors for 1st time recently.
Rear wiper motor.
Occasional evap code with service engine light/check gages light going on/off at times... Mechanic says gas cap seal is bad.
Heat shield needs to be tightened over exhaust pipe.. causing a rattle.
4x4 is excellent, aggressive looks with brush guard, very comfortable front seats.
Visibility is fairly decent.
Acceleration is fine for everyday driving unless going up steeper hills. Decent cargo room.
Tight rear seat.
Front suspension squeaks when going over large bumps, tranny downshifts hard when stepping on it. Gas mileage could be better than 18 mpg/gall.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
