Loved It — I loved the roominess. Love the way it handled on the highway. The fact that I owned it for eleven years, it was very reliable. Plus the fact that it was very low maintenance. Would buy a used one again.

$$$ — We thought this would be a good SUV for going to work(10 miles one way). So far, the idea hasnt worked well. Something always seem to go wrong every couple of weeks. Its a comfortable ride but not very reliable, yet. I just keep plugging away at it, one day maybe.

build quality, gear box, not very comfortable

Quite Good 7 Seat 4x4 — had the 3.2 litre v6, with a turbo, was quick, but lack of tourque and a bad manual gearbox let it down, not as good as the landcruiser

Love The Trooper. I've Owned 3 And They Have All Been Great. — Very good all round SUV. Not exceptionally powerful, doesnt handle great on highway, But is a solid contender offroad, and is very roomy and comfortable inside. All around GREAT vehicle. Owned 3, and would buy another in a heart beat.

performance

Cons

MPG

Hungry/thirsty Trooper — MPG was HORRIBLE, but to be honest it was a solid and reliable car... Well built, plenty of accesories that came standard and very good performance in the heaviest snow! (i lived in Michigan and it did very good in the worst winters!)
