Hey there, I have a family friend who is a recent convert

She is wanting to sell her '88 aries for a SUV and can't spend more that 6K. She wants a 4 door and likes the 4Runner but can't afford a 2nd Gen Runner. Her saving bonds come due June 30 so we have time to research this.

Late 80's is the SUVs in her price range and she's leaning to the pathfinder. I am leary of NAmerican trucks of that era after a decades worth or wear.

She needs this for only FS Road type travel. No rock monkeying here. I do not know of the suttle issue with older Pathfinders, Troopers
or YJs Jimmys & Explorers.

Reliability is a big issue here. Could some of you guide me towards aquiring the knowledge to help her out? Caveats, Links and general info? ie what does the pathfinder have for a engine, YJ perhaps. I have little knowledge outside Toys.

Much thanks

If she wants a decent vehicle that is good on gas, cheap on parts, doesnt need much done to it constantly, and that will never let her down...

DO NOT GET A YJ!
