"This is an extraordinary vehicle, a true workhorse. We use it to haul around bags of mulch and plants and two very big dogs, plus one not so big dog. The gas mileage is amazing and we really appreciated it during the high gas prices period a few years back. Very little maintenance, the usual stuff, like tires, battery, a few replacement things to be expected."
"Favorite vehicle I've ever owned, But...engine taken apart twice and am on third transmission. Each of the two previous went with just over 50,000 miles. Put over seven thousand $ in it in last three years. Book is only 1,100. However, cannot find vehicle with under 100k miles for the cost of the $4000 new trans. Engine is in new condition, now, interior and ex is perfect. Great sound system. Had a lot of work done in the five years I've had it. Is fourteen years old but looks only a few. Never had a speeding ticket, by the way, and drive and accerate evenly."
Cons: "Mileage, & pickup, not good for a 2.4L engine."

"Loved it after we got it in 2010. Retired 2 years before. Finally realized there was little that would need expensive repair, like power windows, locks, seats, etc. The only automatic things have to do with safety, like auto shut off of door lights, power outlet, etc. No major problems all this time. Not a lot of power to haul loads, though.
However, .mny grandson just rear-ended someone at a traffic light."
"205K miles with all the original parts, including transmission. Great function for a family utility vehicle. It has always done what I asked it to do. I've taken good care of it and it has taken good care of me."
"This vehicle has never left me stranded. Very dependable and low maintenance. I'm ashamed to admit it but with 151,000 miles on it I never have done a tune up on it as of yet. Very reliable, very comfortable and economical. Highly recommend to anyone."
