    Nice Car — I think that an suv that gets 23 mpg and i haven't had to do any work. the sound is good with an aftermarket stereo and for $4000 i don't think that there is another car that i would want. I would like it to be 4wd.

    Pros: mid sized, good mpg, price, looks

    Cons: doesn't have a sports car accelaration

    Capable, Reliable Suv With Classic Look — Not the sexiest car, but I've been driving this vehicle since high school. It gets me from A to B and carries all my stuff. 19MPG average (mix of city and highway).

    Pros: Practical, reliable, plenty of room, good visibility

    Cons: Sans modifications not particularly impressive in handling, acceleration, or off road capability

    Awesome Truck Based Suv Good Handling On And Off W/ Good Visability — I like this ride as a all around get around. Its not to big but its not so small that it has a weeny engine. Mine puts out 200 horses and will tow 5000 lbs. Perfect car for my lovely wife. Around 23 mpg on th h way makes it a alright tripmobile

    Pros: power rear glass

    Cons: auto tranny

    I Have Had Car For 10 Years. I Still Love It As When I First Bought It! — To me, it is one of those cars that do not de-value in it's likeability. At 106K miles, it still looks cool, rides tough and I feel safe with my family in it. I've only made few repairs and no major problems. I paid $32K in 1997 and feel it was a very good investment.

    Owner for 10 years, 5 months

    Miles Driven per Year:10,000

    Cons: foggy rear windows in winter.

    A Surprise Suv Gem! — This car has quick and precise handling, easy acceleration and you can whip right into parking space as if it was a car. You will be pleased to know that even at 14years old, this car requires minimum maintenance or repairs. Car still starts right up and runs smoothly. AC blows cold and cover the back area well. The appearance is traditional and even a 97 model with new wheels and tires looks great. SUV has solid craftmanship. The cost of gas beats any SUV now on the market - up to 25MPG. The SUV is great for school and sports moms. Great for traveling on just a great for a round about town SUV. I love love this vehicle!!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    Pros: Easy handling, great gas mileage, and low maintenance cost.

    Cons: cup holder placement, other than that- nothing!
