I have had this car for 8 years and it's gone about 243,000. I have only had two minor repairs, an alternatior and a thermostat, less than $500. Anything else was normal, like tires, brake pads and oil changes. I thought I should sell it 2 years ago but kept it and am so glad I did. It just keeps on going. My locks don't respond properly and the drinkholder broke but the car moves with no problem and has not let me down.
The room. Third row seat for the dog, very back for the groceries and the rest for me and the kids. Fits tons of stuff on vacations.
Better door locks and drinkholders. I also had trouble with the second row middle seat belt not working and had to buy a new seat belt.
