In a word - practical. It's carried everything from my kayaks to furniture. I've had only very minor problems (air bag sensor) and it is phenomenal on gas. Only down side is that it's a bit on the boring side. I had an Escort ZX2 before this, and that was a lot more fun to drive.
The wagon is roomier than you could believe. And the split fold seats make it possible to carry all kinds of stuff.
The back door latches stick. I'm assuming I'll eventually need them replaced.
