bought new in 2002, even though i try not to buy the first model year for any vehicle.
my mileage has been a consistent 28 mpg hwy with 6 large people and luggage.
plenty of power.
I tow a 24 foot sail boat and cant even tell that it is there.
overall, very happy.
the third party insurance for the extended plan was extremly hard to deal with.
also, placing the coil packs on the spark plugs means the intake manifold has to come off to change the pack. also, seats are way too heavy to deal with.
