This car has taken me over plenty of bad roads, snowy summits, and bad relationships!! 206k miles and still going strong. No major repairs ever. Just the usual stuff. Engine is bullet proof. Cup holders and a split back seat would be the only improvement. Not important enough to trade in yet. Can't imagine it being destroyed with the cash for clunkers program. It hauls my bikes, skis, and me to all of my fun weekends. Big enough and fits in my garage better than the newer SUVs.
Simple, classic look and big enough to haul my toys. Always reliable and handles snow, ice, mud and bumpy back roads well. Great clearance.
Cupholders and split back seat ... but I'm sure the new ones have that.
