I like the 4x4 and power steering, but the engine has a serious lack of power. And it doesn't go as fast in reverse as my X500 despite adjusting the pedal all the way up. Time is money. Cleaning engine screens is a pain in the ass and the driveline grease fittings are nearly impossible to lubricate without an automotive type lift.

It's a nice rig alright, but not worth the 13 grand I paid. I am starting to regret trading my X500. And drinks just as much fuel as a gas engine, about a gallon an hour.
