Make Sure You Get The V6 — A terrifically versatile vehicle; great acceleration and handling with tons of space inside for a small vehicle. Quality has been great so far. Annoyances have been minor--mainly the carpet in the rear, which doesn't stay down well and rumples up while putting in cargo.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Versatile, affordable, dependable, and fun

Cons: I haven't found any yet

Solid Platform — Good gas milage out of a do it all vehicle. It isn't fast and isn't going on any trails but it can fit every thing for a weekend get away and get you there in one piece. The 4x4 is deffianantly more of a bad weather handler and not an off road accrument. Its not a pretty thing really, but it is functional and comes with all the nicities such as power locks, windows, mirrors, steering and good ABS brakes.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Good small SUV

Cons: If you need to tow or want to get there fast

Pretty Good Little Suv — It's been a pretty good car. No big problems, just needed new stabilizer bars, which I guess is a common problem. The 4WD has been helpful in the snow. It warms up great in the cold and the heated seats are awesome in an "economy" car.

Pros: 4WD, heated seats

Cons: bad stabilizer bars, gas mileage is worse then I thought it would be.

Awesome 4x4! — This is the best vehicle I've both driven and rode in. The front wheel drive is a plus in the winter because it handles like a car but has higher clearance than a car and has the 4x4 system. The truck comes with both auto 4x4 and full time. The auto 4x4 is great for when the roads are somewhat bad but it's nice to be able to throw it in 4x4 when you see a bad patch coming.

Pros: FWD, auto 4x4, good gas mileage!

Cons: You can't do donuts with the auto 4x4.

Best Vehicle To Own — This vehicle is smooth sailing. Comfy on long trips. You can't get past the fully loaded package deal and the smooth and roomy feel. You can pretty much carry anything in it.

Pros: reliable, trustworthy, well-maintained, roomy, seats fold in, easy transportation

Cons: has a tendency for rollover if not driven properly, leather seats can be a problem in the winter time (Your bum gets cold) and in the spring time you will cling to your seat.
