Engine Just Keeps Running

One of the most durable cars we've ever owned! Cast iron block engine refuses to die making this a low-cost vehicle to own. I believe they changed in the model years to follow. If you're looking for a cheap SUV that is super reliable, take a 2nd look at this model. With 297,000 miles on the original engine and tranny, it showed no signs of quitting. If it hadn't gotten moisture/mold on the interior carpet, we'd still have it. The insurance company would not replace the carpet, and decided to total it out. We paid $3400 for it, drove for 7 years, and totaled for $2500. How's that for retained value! I should add that a mechanic once told me that he had customers with well over 400,000 miles on this model-year!!
