No. — Gas mileage is terrible. The driving is "stiff". Air conditioning is poor. My dad removed the wheel on the back and it looks stupid. Don't take the wheel off. This car is only good for your grandpa. Tell him it was on sale.

Primary Use: Utility (towing boats, transporting cargo, etc.)

Unique Affordable Family Car — It's clean and simple and it looks great. It doesn't feel cheap and I don't feel so poor driving it. Ours is loaded, even has a 6-CD changer up front. It's comfortable and very practical for family use. It runs and drives good, but it burns oil at 94K and the mileage isn't outstanding. Also lost the ability to go back to 2WD - needs to be fixed. Really like the torque-on-demand 4WD especially in the winter. Bona-fide 4WD drive can go off-road, not like a little KIA. It is cheaper used where we live than the usual 4WD Blazer or Explorer and that's why we bought it, so we can have a 4WD in the winter the wife feels comfortable driving.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Super Utility For Your Everyday Use — Performance - excellent acceleration Build Quality - rock-solid Appearance - macho-looking, people tend to give way, leather seating needs a lot of care Cost of Ownership - average, until your engine breaks down Fun Factor - install a better stereo, a third-party refrigerator, some good speakers, headrest monitors, and your all set

2002 Isuzu Trooper — Crappy gas milage, front seats have minimal legroom. I'm only 5'11' and have the seat all the way back. Back seats have tons of room Very practical, tons of functional room, simple, easy to use, low maint Good looking SUV, the model has a Honda engine, smooth and reliable. I had a 1996 Trooper which have a GM V6, it was underpowered and only got 15 MPG city/highway
