Only had one issue with my exploder, housing for thermostat was leaking,no issue now.Goes through snow like a snowplow, I had it for 8 years and love it.
My wife call him Spike we have drove him to other states never had to worry about draking down. Personally you could take the 4 door ones drive off a cliff there junk. I have street tires on it,it well go through any conditions the 4 wheel drive is great. Spike is the best suv I have ever had!!!
