The most reliable AWD 4x4 SUV available
Not much wrong with the vehicle, we purchased it in Colorado and drove it home to Minnesota (880 miles) without any problems. Any issues with the vehicle are simply due to natural wear and tear from the high mileage.
A few small issues: drivers seat belt is a little worn and fraying, power mirrors need some work, little door switches that turn the overhead lights on when you open the door are wearing out (all of which will be fixed very soon).
I must admit, even with nearly 250,000 miles, this vehicle drives like new because it has been so well cared for. I am simply amazed.
Interior is in great shape (cloth interior).
Engine runs perfect.
Transmission shifts perfectly smooth and has no problems.
Brakes are excellent.
Traction in snow/mud is awesome.
Fuel economy is pretty good too (average of 15 MPG while traveling at 75 MPH for 880 miles).
If you take care of these vehicles, they will take care of you.
I may have to buy another one of these for myself (my wife drives this vehicle).
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
