I am at 186,000 miles and have experienced very few problems. Automatic door lock malfunctions have recurred a number of times however. Also, don't let your drink drip or sweat too much or it messes up the neutral-start switch (under the shift console). Have replaced an oxygen sensor and speed sensor; TPS probably next.
four-wheel drive, reliability, easy to change oil.
Door lock system, perhaps easier access for spark plug changes and simple repairs.
