Most reliable car I've owned.

Drove this car up to 220k miles and it still has tons of life in it. Safe, sturdy, reliable! Never broke down, never had an engine light. This car is rock solid!

Pretty good car

It's a pretty good car. It's pretty easy to tune. It's fun to drive as well. And the all wheel drive is killer.
