Numerous odds and ends have been fixed since new.
New carburetor (tough to start in the cold).
My brother drove it without oil while ignoring the low oil light and gauge, and destroyed the engine.
Worn vinyl seats, which I re-upholstered later.
CD player installed.
Power steering installed.
Great dependable vehicle.
Small cab space is great for warming up quick in the winter time. It gets warm really quickly. I often roll down the window with the heat on full blast.
Amazing off road vehicle. It can handle mud, puddles, and deep water.
Without power steering, it handles really good on curvy roads, but can be a pain in small parking lots. But the power steering makes parking lots easier, but at the same time made road driving less fun.
It has gotten to the point where it's difficult and takes forever to start in the cold. Or if you've let it sit for extended periods of time.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
