Practical good looks

ReviewI really like this car. It is solid and practical. Great cargo room, long and lower than SUVs. With my Thule roof rack I can carry kayaks, bicycles, or lumber on top without help getting it on the load bars. However, since 100K miles I'm putting quite a bit of money into repairs. Maybe that's normal, but my wife's 1994 Accura Legend with 164K miles has needed fewer repairs (per her). Wonderful winter car too.
Best FeaturesThe AWD, the driver's information computer, the exterior height (lower than SUVs), and the cargo capacity. Oh, the car looks great and is solid and tight still!
Worst FeaturesFix the headlight problem of burning out bulbs. Cruise controls on this year are old fashioned, but have been updated on newer years. Water runs onto the front seats off the roof when wet! My repair man tells me the AC units are known to spring leaks behind the dashboard.
