I bought this car after having my third child. I hate vans and despise SUVs. This car was an obvious choice. It's functional, comfortable, and gets decent gas mileage (23 mpg hwy). The only downside to the car is that the transmission starts slipping at around 100,000 miles. I also own a Buick, same year/model, and noticed the same thing. Regular maintenance and a good additive solve the problem. Otherwise, this is the ideal family vehicle and the ultimate road trip machine. It never fails to draw compliments.
Seating for eight, the auto load leveling feature, dual action tailgate, power everything, and sleek styling.
Make 'em again! Until then, I'll keep maintaining and rebuilding (if necessary) this one.
