Bought this car used with 113k miles in 2006. Soon after purchasing the check engine light came up, we had it fixed ($700) and ran without problems for about 3 years. In the meantime, we went places, off-road, from TN to FL, etc. Very reliable car, seats are the best in the industry. Cargo space adequate. Even today (10/16/2010) it provides a very smooth ride. The service light is back on, but the codes returned are safe to ignore (fuel condenser system, est. repair cost 2k). Great, dependable car, electrical system, specially the A/C, warning lights could have been designed better.
The ride and the mileage. Dependability of the car, you turn ignition it runs 150% of the time, never left us stranded on the road. Well built car.
Electrical system, put a more powerful air conditioning system. Not every place on earth has cool climate like Sweden. Cup holders are a joke. Rear door could be built a little sturdier.
