Well, except for its size and weight (limiting access to wider, harder strips), its fuel consumption (40 to 52 GPH) and the cost of maintaining and insuring, it's a great bushplane.
They're BIG. I once flew in and parked a Taylorcraft next to an AN -2 at an airshow, in the static display area. The ailerons on the AN-2 were nearly as big as the Taylorcraft's wings.
