I hit a soft shoulder in this wagon going 70 mph and it stuck to the ground like rock. I feel very safe in this car and it is extremely comfortable for the driver and front passenger. Three kids in the back complain!! The driver cup holder is awkwardly above the CD player or below the middle arm rest. The booster seats are nice, but when kids fall asleep there is no support for their heads. I had to replace the rear wiper multiple times (6-7), but I will be sad to part with this car. The leather held up nicely, but I did also have a problem with the lights on the control panel which was >$650 to fix when I thought a fuse change would do it.
