Rugged and reliable in the California desert.

This vehicle has been very reliable and performs well. Costs of maintenance have been low overall. It's comfortable and carries lots of passengers and cargo. Well built to last but a bit of a gas guzzler. Adjustable seats are rugged and convenient. Interior climate control always performs well.
