Very sporty, comfortable and easy to drive!

This vehicle has two comfortable back seats. It is not 4 wheel drive, but we never really need that. We picked the color red, though I liked the blue better. It wasn't available to us at the time. The back is very roomy and is extremely convenient for hauling yard waste, furniture, and multiple bags of groceries.

Great ride very versatile vehicle.

Poor gas mileage, tailgate tried to fall off, very reliable solid truck with and expandable rear bed that helps to carry larger objects, body does not look dated at all, it very comfortable to sit and drives like a car on the highway. The paint has held up well even in the California sun.

- Bruce C

Minor inconveniences. Windows and emissions.

I have had recurring problems with the evaporative emissions system. The window motors are bad and need to be replaced. Gas mileage is erratic. It’ll get anywhere between 24 and 16 miles per gallon with the same conditions. Otherwise it has been a very reliable truck. I like the size.
