This is a great used wagon for the money if you can find one that has been used gently, i.e., was maintained on conservative intervals. There's easily enough room for 5 people, and the cargo space is truly enormous. The base Vulcan engine (145 hp) lacks power but is quiet and smooth. The upside of the car's tremendous weight is its stability and, while no one wants to go head to head with an SUV, this biggie wagon feels solid. I've been quite happy.
Space! Low-to-the-ground, so drives like a car instead of a mushy SUV. Engine is quiet, interior noise is low. Gains tremendous speed going downhill (probably because it's shaped like a torpedo and is the same weight as one).
Sturdier brakes, sturdier transmission, make certain basic maintenance items (replacing blinker bulbs, cabin air filter, etc.) easier to access. Remove open door sensors from actual latch (they get gummed up--WD40 fixes it).
