A couple more notes on this:

The third row of seats is like new. Rarely used, and stored (covered) in the garage when not in use.

As you can see in the last picture, the driver's seat has the usual wear, but not too bad considering the age. All other seats are in good shape; the driver's seat is the only one with issues.

Paint is in overall good shape. If you are good with detailing, this thing will shine like new. Minimal scratches and dings -- unusually few for the age of the vehicle. There are some "claw" marks where the dogs have jumped on the side while playing Frisbee, but I think those would buff out.

The 4WD has trouble shifting into and out of gear. But it's there for those wanting to fix it. I believe it's a matter of the actuator going bad. But since we never take it off-road or have a use for 4WD, the lack of use has resulted in the actuation issue.

There is a high-speed vibe (nothing terrible, but noticeable). We've had wheels and driveshaft balanced, had the differential gone through, as well as replaced the joints of the driveshaft. None of that fixed it, and we ran out of ideas what it was. It wasn't that big of a worry/irritation, so we stopped putting money into it to try to find the issue.

Also note that the 6-disc CD changer has the CD cartridge needed for it. Sometimes those go missing or people forget about them. Ours is left in the car, waiting to be used by the new owner!

It has Michelin LTX tires on it with plenty of tread life left. Great tires.

And no, nothing about this car will be "parted out", so don't ask. Well, I take that back. I'll consider parting it out, as long as you are willing to pay $3500 for the part(s) and take the rest of the car with you.

I have a couple more pictures available upon request.

PM me if you'd like to arrange a meeting.
