Wife doesn't want to trade it in.....

We liked it so well we are trading it in on a 2002. Very versatile for my scoccer mom wife..... Really liked the versatility of modular seats. On long road trips we would fold the driver side middle seat down (folding the back down makes the back completely flat) and strap on a TV/VCR for the kids and head down the road. Mom & I would plug in the headphones and listen to books on tape. Worked great!! Only problem that we ever had in four years was that the power sliding door got out of sync once. The dealer unplugged the power and pluged it back in to re-set (no charge)..... and we were on our way.
The slam on the modular seats is that they aren't comfortable for adults. But they work great for kids. We have now outgrown the built in child seats, but they were great when our kids we that size (and they folded out of the way easily if we put adults there).
The whole cup holder thing could be better. The little flip down ones off of the front passenger and middle seats were always getting stomped on.....
