    CarExpert's Take

    Mike Costello
    Senior Contributor
    Mike Costello drove this car and these were their findings:
    Hits
    • Particularly great front seats
    • Punchy, efficient diesel; tows well
    • Reasonable value and servicing costs
    Misses
    • Styling elements all form, no function
    • Can't match Ranger's V6, full-time 4x4
    • Pulling down the sunvisor knocks the rear-view mirror out of alignment
