Pros: "Good gas mileage, room for luggage and other items"

Cons: "Has a blind spot that could be tricky."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"I have had this car for approximately seven years. During that time I have driven from upstate New York to California and back, plus to Colorado and back at least four times. Several times to Florida and back also. Never an issue. This car would hold four passengers and a load of luggage with no problem. My husband took three friends golfing. All four sets of clubs fit into the trunk. The mileage is good, the ride is very good and the seats are comfortable.It is easy to enter and exit, no ducking needed. The controls on the dash are user friendly, easy to identify, unlike some cars where you have to read the manual to turn on the heat. Actually, my sister has the exact same car, bought without my knowledge. She feels exactly the same about the ease and comfort of the car.The only things I have replaced are tires and brakes which would have to be done to any care with 128000 miles on it."

Pros: "Roomy, quiet, comfort, good driving position."

Cons: "A few glitches, premature rust."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"Fantastic driving, with lots of room and great visibility. Mechanically the engine and drivetrain are a dream, and with 144k miles, only regular maintenance needed. Super quiet interior, and for long haul travel is a very comfortable vehicle. Some issues encountered: - Drivers heated seat failed at around 50,000 miles. - A/C 'air door' behind the dashboard has some cheap plastic worm gears that failed. Makes an annoying ticking sound when calling for change in heat/cool. - Drivers side rear wheel well has premature rust-through. Local dealership says 'tough luck, out of warranty'. In checking with a local body shop, he said he's seen several with same issue. All that said, I love this car."

Best vehicle ever!
