Ok a review is needed; what does one need to know about these early Rubis? Are they reliable and maintainable?

01-04 are a crapshoot on the Hondamatics. I've seen them croak with 1k on them and I've seen them with 14k on them.
Drum brakes, all time 4wd.

I'd pass unless dirt cheap. The 05-up are much nicer
Nailed it.
This thread pretty well explains the issue with the first generation hondamatic units.
