Summary:

No ditch too deep, no hill to steep, no boundaries

Faults:

It won't retire. Costly to run, but lots of fun to have. A gas guzzler and has leaks all over it, whether oil or water. However it's her nature.

General Comments:

Still reliable, gives me and my friends a lot of fun. I used it as an everyday workhorse and it's easy to fix.
