Family Wagon — As sometimes happens, my wife and I needed to move her mother in. As a result we needed transportation with more room than the 1982 Ford escort that we owned. The room and comfort of this station wagon was excellent. Bought my first real family car. I could relate to the Grizwalds.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Room and Comfort

Cons: No fun at all and tells all the girls that you're Married with children

One Of The Best Cars I Have Ever Owned!! — I bought this car about two years ago (2010) with 52,000 miles on it. Pretty low for the age. At first I did not believe the odometer, but when I drove it, it was one of the smoothest riding cars I have ever driven. After I replaced the ancient tires, it was even smoother. I replaced the brake lines and pads, belt, and battery, and maintain it regularly and it has given me around 30,000 miles of trouble free driving in two years. I drive over an hour and a half every day averaging 400 miles a week. I wouldn't hesitate to drive it across the country and back tomorrow! It is comfortably cozy with a one child family, but if another child comes along I would have to get something a bit bigger. Handling is tight, for an American car that size, and I average around 25 mpgs. Oh, and that V-6 is torquey! I can beat anyone off the line at a stoplight...but they catch up with me around 25 when the bottom drops out...overall a great perfoming and driving car, though. If I could find them, I would buy a fleet of them! I am also impressed at how well it gets around in the snow. No contest the best snow car I have ever driven. ( jan 2015 Update--I not longer have this car--head gasket blew out, which is a common issue with the V6. It would have been a cheap fix, but with a new kid, I did not have the time to do it. If you do get one of these cars, I would recommend being able to do major engine work, just in case)

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: Reliable. Front engine, rear wheel drive setup, Enough room for a small family. Cheap to maintain, cheap to buy. Decent mileage for a 27 year old car with a V-6.

Cons: Not the best looking thing on the road. A/C blew out and is not cost effective to replace with the old freon. Head gaskets weak.
