I have been hauling may family and various trailers around for 17 years. You cannot ask for more comfort. The four captains chairs and fold-down bed/third-row bench seat are great. I have a new crew cab pickup, but the family still prefers the club wagon for comfort. Reliability has been outstanding with a radiator failure (from towing in 105+ degree weather) being the only problem I have ever had. Paint and interior are still in excellent condition despite being 17 years old.
The ample room for all pasengers is a hugh plus. The rear A/C and heating units are a rear-seat favorite.
My only reservation is the 5.8L engine. It provide good fuel economy for a vehicle this size, and performed great for towing smaller trailers and boats. However, when I upgraded to a 28 foot travel trailer, the 5.8L just did not have power to handle the hills.
