I've been driving a 2000 wagon for three
and a half years. Comfortable, secure
car. A little wind noise from the
driver's window and one recall (haven't
had time to follow up on that yet), but
no problems otherwise. Will probably
get an '05 next fall. For me, just
about the perfect car, and I don't
understand how anyone can call it
underpowered. It isn't, even with a
fully loaded roof rack and cargo area:
luggage, dogs, computer, printer,every
square inch packed.
Excellent ride on paved roads and gravel
roads. Also, I appreciateand that this
is a safe vehicle. Looks great, too!
(No, I don't ride off-road so climbing
boulders or fording swamps isn't a
'05 model should include cold weather
options as standard features. Front cup
holder in the dash gets a little tippy
and could use some work there.
