This car has been in my family since its original purchase in 2000. The car was passed onto me in 2008 with 150,000 miles on it. It still drives like the day it was purchased.
The interior cabin is dead quiet and the ride is incredibly smooth.
It is fantastic for road trips, it gets about 30 mpg on the highway using regular fuel. It accelerates well for a car of its size.
It handles well in snow, as long as you drive accordingly. It is incredibly reliable, it starts up right away every morning (even when it is 5 degrees outside).
Also, the sound system is fantastic.
