Has been an excellent vehicle for us. We spent two summers traveling, 8500 and 11500 miles respectively. Very, very comfortable for it's size. Gas mileage is generally in the 28-33 mpg range. As a spunky engine which if pushed on starts will drop mpg to 25. Have run Mobil 1 which has kept wear to a minimum apparently, since doesn't require addl. oil between 3500-4000 changes. No maintence beyond standard belts, transmission oil changes every 30,000, tires and battery change.
We like the cargo space available in the wagon with the seats folded down since we travel a lot. Also, the comfort is great, especiall for a small-medium sized car.
I wish they still made this wagon. It would be even greater if it had the Hybrid like the Toyota Prius.
