AWD, Automatic, 145,000 miles. 12/16/2011. Really like the car. Normal driving. Severe service, It has done a lot for me, but it is expensive to maintain. Bought used 02/2008 58,000 miles. Since then to now, 12/16/2011, passenger front CV axle assembly replaced twice. Boot split. $500 p&L. Driver front CV axle assembly replaced once. Boot Split. $268 P&L. Alternator replaced. $150 P&L. Starter replaced. $258 P&L. Both rear bearings replaced. $150 P&L.

2 brake rotors 2 brake drums shoes linings. $391 P&L. Timing belt, components, water pump, thermostat, coolant, accessory belts replaced. $600 P&L. Cruise control pilot light out. CC still works fine. AC pilot light out. AC still works fine. Wating to do Rack and Pinion. $473 P&L. Radiator leaked. Fixed with 2 bottles rad leak seal. $20. Many parts customer supplied, remanf., lower cost, internet. Best improvement. Use AMSOIL synthetic oil and filter. Otherwise, car is great. I like it because of symmetrical AWD and utility. Might change to AWD Suzuki, AWD Misubishi, or 4WD Hyundai. No Ford, Chevy, Chrysler, Dodge, Jeep or European.
