Comfortable, Durable beyond reproach, Useful, Safe
Purchased with 80k miles. Has been wonderful, but with minor flaws. Has always leaked oil from valve cover, and valves always noisy. Has always had oil pressure problems to valves, but with monitoring has always been adequate. Wish fuel economy was better. Comfortable seats, interior, and ride for a big SUV. Great visibility. Handling excellent for what it is. Not pretty, but handsome. The best feature, though, is it's durability. Has been in six accidents and still been able to be driven away from every one. A car one can put ones family, or a teenager, in without worry, even with someone with only moderate driving abilities. Wish that it was still being made, and wish that the public had realized what a great vehicle it was when it was being made. In time, perhaps, it will become revered like the VW Bus.
I have owned this vehicle for about two years. 120k miles when purchased, 145k now. No real problems other than the stuff that starts to wear out after 120k miles. Engine and transmission still run well. Still looks great, the body and paint are still near perfect. Paint looks better than most vehicles half its age. Does extremely well off road as well. this vehicle was purchased for my kids to take to high school, but on weekends it belongs to me.
No problems at all - most reliable
