Purchased this car in Oct. 1999, and it's a very good car to my family of 4. In the past 10 years I haven't got any issues to the engine. The original parts still in the engine such as timing belt or chain, sparks plugs, all the belts, air conditioning unit, fluid, ect. The only parts that have replaced is suspension on the front/back, tires, front brake, oil change every 7-10k, and air filter every 25k. The passenger window wouldn't work about 5 years now, but who cares! Currently the trade-in value for my car is $1600. Therefore, I wouldn't pass up on the cash clunkers deal, and hopefully my new 2010 Honda Pilot have a same performance like this car.
