|I love the look of the vehicle.||The side mirrors are manual: crazy!|
|Suspension - for potholes and off-road driving||Lack of auto radio adjustment at highway speed|
|4wd - need it in winter. works great||Rear seat headrests block rear vision.|
|Performance - excellent pick-up, ease of shifting||Rear suspension and rear ride not very smooth.|
|Location / arrangement of storage spaces||Tailgate panel fit - noticed it right away - bought anyway|
|Manual 6 speed transmission: difficult to find, glad i looked||Wind noises coming into interior when driving.|
|Manual transmission is smooth & has good ratios||Low headlights - high beams don't seem bright|
|Engine acceleration - good for merging||Leather interior - sides of seats are vinyl which tear easily|
|Bilstein shocks provide excellent ride for relatively short wheelbase||Rear passenger & driver doors make it difficult to get in & out|
