Picked this car up used to keep some commuting miles off my 4x4 truck. Never have garaged it through 6 winters of Michigan salt. Pull boat and utility trailers often. Brakes and tires the only major maintenance. Always has a show room shine when I wash it. Also gives 25+ mpg on highway, unless pulling a trailer. Plan to buy a used 2004 to replace it.
Comfortable air suspension ride, fully adjustable leather seats, ABS, traction control and electronic everything.
Easier access to engine for oil and filter changes. Lower top gear for even better fuel economy. I'd also like a tachometer and a compass.
