I'm looking to upgrade my current moho. just test drove a 2007 astoreia. It appears to be in good condition and getting a fair trade in for mine.
Can anyone give me some pro's and con's of this model? It felt a little under powered to me but ran well.

thanks in advance.

Appeared to be in good condition or is in good condition after a close inspection? It is 23 years old. Maintenance records complete? Tire manufacturer dates?

You can EASILY boost that HP and torque 30% without damaging anything.

not 23 yrs old, 13 yrs old. appears to be in good condition as I drove it and looked it over as much as I could in the lot.
All I'm looking for is maybe someone that owns or has owned a similar model and how they liked it or the bugs they had with it. I will have it checked out if and when I decide to pull the trigger as I will have 30 days to decide.

Not true. According to Freightliner, it has the Allison 2500 transmission, not 3000:
