Review
Bought this car with some misgivings because of their overall poor reputation for reliability but ours has been pretty sound. We are at 129K miles and only two real problems so far. Changed the engine main bearing seal for about $400. The dash indications go blank about once a week for a few minutes. You kinda know when it's coming because the ABS light comes on first. Consensus is it's the "Body Control Module" but since it's $900 to replace and hasn't broke permanent we haven't fixed it. Transmission is still okay. Can't beat the comfort/versatility for a family of five. Took a two week vacation last winter to the grand canyon and it plowed through ice, rain and snow like a champ.
Favorite Features
Rear door on drivers side. ABS brakes. Outstanding interior space with great comfort for all (except for the driver). Easy handling with a great ride and good visibility. Infinity sound system with subwoofer is awesome.
Suggested Improvements
More comfortable drivers seat. Fix the dim headlights, it's been the same way since 1983! The rear seat is a chore to remove, lighten it up already! Improve reliability of the electronics. Larger brakes to haul it down when fully loaded. Bigger tires and wheels for heavy loads.
