I got this car as a hand-me-down from my stepdad as my first car. It has the 200 horse engine and the automatic. It has 4wd but it tends to be temperamental in low Upper Michigan temperatures. There are minor things going on with it now. The window motor on the drivers side is going out on me, but I have learned to deal. No more a/c, hasnt been working for a few years now. No biggie. the gas mileage is not abhorrent, but still stinks at 16-20. As a college student, I gotta find a smaller car. I will miss her.
Drivetrain was fairly reliable. Has enough room for all of my miscellany. fairly easy to personalize. Still a somewhat androgynous vehicle.
Better speakers. Little naggy things start to add up and it gets rather irritating.
