"I am the second owner and bought it in 2010 at 105,000 miles. Since then, I have replaced a high output alternator and battery (Premium sound requires a better alternator). Some maintenance like oil changes are done at a regular basis. The engine was leaking oil somewhere so I cut down the frequent oil changes from every 3 mo/3000 mi to 5 mo/5000 mi. with the high mileage oil and filters. After that, the engine would leak less. It runs great in winter time than in summer. Everyone seems crawling on the road."

Pros: "Excellent all around vehicle!"

Cons: "A/C quit"

"We bought it used in 1997. Motor is as sound as when we got it. never had exhaust replaced or repaired and still quiet. Replaced one freeze plug. A/C quit about 8 years ago. Window motors have failed except for one. Remotes still work. If I had the money I would get a brand new one tomorrow and drive it twenty years! Transmission has never had any repairs, just service."
