Faults:

I got the car for free. It did not run.

Had the computer repaired. The repair shop said the computer is not working. Is there a way to test the computer out of the car?

The check engine light does not come on and there is no spark when trying to start the motor. The repair shop does not have a good wire diagram to follow. Should I take it to the dealer? Any idea's Thanks.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know

Summary:

Rough and rugged elegance

Faults:

CV boot (because I wasn't afraid to use her as she was intended - 4 wheeling!).

Universal joint (same reason).

Valve guide seals (a little late changing the oil).

Computer (at 140K).

AC (at 160K).

Electronic suspension (expensive to fix - avoid this if possible).

Motor too small.

A little top-heavy.

General Comments:

From the beginning I took this SUV offroad - truly a testosterone machine. And ever since it has been an incredible car.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
