First year of release, now coming up on 20 years and this vehicle is still a GREAT car. We have 150,000 miles and put our first big expense into the car (AC repair @ $1000). This has been the most reliable car we've ever owned. Car is 17+ years old and still looks like it rolled off the showroom floor. No rust, no dings, no scratches, no cuts. I've pushed my wife to buy a newer car and she pushes back everytime. She loves this car.
Smooth ride, durable, reliable, comfortable,
This car is 900 lbs heavier than subsequent models. I'm not sure I wouldn't put the 900 lbs back (grin).
