We have found the car to be the perfect car for us. Other than the tires wearing out @30,000 miles, premature death of the battery and 1 bad rear door lock actuator it has been reliable. I have loaded it full to go camping and mountain biking several times; it will lots of stuff, however the 4 cyl does struggle in the mountains when loaded. MPG is great wife gets 24 around town. Doesn't drive like a mini van! Fun to drive.
Manual shift option on transmission, all the rear seats fold down, storage under rear seats
Sun visors need to be larger, passenger seat arm rest (fixed in 08) rear air (fixed in 08) offer a 6 cyl engine, add MP3 player aux input (fixed in 08)
