Yeah, i had a hard time belive it was off road before when i first got it. You really need to look closely to see the battle scars it has. thankfully its just scracths and some worn shocks.
I honestly don't know the cost, my parents gave it to me as a gift. Idk what i'd rather do tho, have them pay for gas and me the car, or vis versa, cuz gas milage kills me.
