Even after 150K miles it still has plenty of juice, it can still accelerate up a hill in 5 gear. I have a first gen manual so I don't have to worry about the SMOD from the second gen's... Two things though, 1) at 75mph on the freeway I get 15mpg. 65mph and under I get 17/18mph, just the way it's geared. 2) Its built to go up into the mountains, stiff ride too, good for 4x4, not good for if you're used to a newer SUV. Had to replace my AC and a few other things, but the darn thing is 20 years old.
