I bought my 2002 Rodeo from a stranger off of Craigslist when it already had 150,00 miles on it. However, it might as well have been brand new! The car worked almost like a new one and has incredible endurance. Mine is a dark green color, which I love. It can make it through rain or snow, no matter how heavy, and is incredibly flexible considering its size. Speaking of which, it is so spacious! I can fit so much in the back of the car - mattresses, furniture, musical equipment, you name it! As a traveling musician, this was incredibly helpful. I never had to worry about where I was going to store my instruments. The car has a relatively quiet engine, and a pretty good stereo on its own. The only problem I had with this car is its gaskets. They were constantly messing up, and this would... (more)
Story
The first time I test drove the car around my neighborhood. I didn't have a car at the time so I had to take the bus everywhere. It was so stressful and made it so hard to get around and live my life, and I had been looking for the right car for so long but just couldn't find one. When I met my friend, who was selling the car on my street, I fell in love with the car instantly. I got in and te... (more)
Pros
Easy on the eyes, incredibly spacious, and a good speaker system for an older car.
Cons
Broken gaskets and a faulty gas gauge.

Overall, this car has been very dependable for me. It has had a few mechanical issues, but nothing that completely stopped the car from running or couldn't be fairly easily fixed. However, there were some things about the car that I wished worked better. The interior was also fairly plain and somewhat dated. However, the interior still looked good for its age and the use of the car.
Story
When we bought this car, my boyfriend at the time and I were in a time crunch, and we found this car for him just in time. After purchasing the car, we had dinner together and both said that we had a fun, memorable day. We would always remember looking for this car together.
Pros
This vehicle was one that I could always rely on. The exterior of the car was in great shape, and it did not look dated at all. The paint held up very well. All of the major mechanics on this car worked well, and even held up through a major trip. I never had to make repairs on this car that totaled over $300, which is rare for a car of this age. The interior also held up surprising well, and the car overall was very durable.
Cons
Some small things on the vehicle did not work as they should. For example, the air conditioner would not blow out very cold air, no matter what I did. Also, the acceleration on the car was not great either. However, this car was older and larger, so it expected that there should be a lack of power. The inside of the car did not have any bells of whistles. It was very plain.
