Best of all world's, really.

I truly do love the different options for driving, such as 4WD, winter, power, etc. It is extremely easy to go in/out of each of these (push a button). That being said, the placement of said buttons is poorly thought out. Since they sit in the middle area between seat, under the gear shift, I constantly am accidentally hitting them & putting the vehicle into a mode I didn't intend to. I do like the space available, and how it is designed so that it can be used to it is maximum potential (laying back seats down, etc.). Considering it is a fairly small SUV, it has impressive leg room in both the front and back. We have a large household and we rarely feel cramped, and usually have decent space left for storage.

Rodeo still going strong, seventeen years later.

My vehicle I bought about five years ago, the transmission had went out but it had a lot of miles on the previous one. The new one has run well and the mechanic said that type of transmission was easy to work on. The fuel mileage is fair for a 4wd vehicle, it normally gets 23 to 24 mph on the highway/interstate. A little less in town driving. The seats are comfortable and the inside has remained in good condition, trim, roof lining etc. I like the controls, buttons are pretty easily accessible. One complaint would be the winter drive button location. In the middle between the seats, of the front. Every time you get in with something and hit that button without noticing it is very frustrating.

Great car for young adult and new driver.

I really like the size of my vehicle. Sitting up higher not the road makes me feel safer and more in control. This car is very reliable and lasts a long time. The maintenance is very low. Although I do have an oil leak so I have to check the oil often to make sure it's not too low. I do not like how shaky the car feels on the road and how it kind of feels like I might tip over when the roads are wet. The cup holders on the inside are completely useless.
