You will find this car to be an exceptional winter car with full time 4 wheel drive at all times. This car shreds through the snow with no trouble at all. You can handle any snow that Michigan can dish out. It would make a great trout bum vehicle, and also perfect for summertime camping and beach runs.
This car runs great and has no mechanical defects that I am aware of. I spend most of my year in Idaho and this car has spent most of the last couple years sitting in my mom’s garage taking up space.
I bought this in 2006 from Alabama and have since put on about 70k miles. Most of the miles I put on this vehicle were in Idaho where there is also no salt used on the roads, so this car is essentially rust and corrosion free (except for one spot on the back where it was hit with a stray shopping cart). This blemish could easily be repaired for less than $200 I am guessing.
I have put a lot of money into this car in order to make your purchase easy and trouble free. A new head gasket was installed less than 200 miles ago by a professional mechanic, and a new windshield with the expensive heated wiper area was installed just yesterday.
This car will make a great daily driver for those with a long commute, or just someone who lives a little ways from town on non plowed snow covered roads. I would confidently drive this car anywhere in the country without any hesitation.
You can see in the video the small rust/dent spot from the shopping cart and the scratches from my dogs claws on the passenger dashboard. Other than those items this car is in great shape! With an average amount of wear for it’s age.
