For A Station Wagon It Does Pretty Well — I love this car, i love the way it grips the corner like a obese man would grip onto the last hamburger in the world. I love the fact that it does what you want it to do you just feel like you have complete controls of the car the whole time. I love the fact that the car is over ten years old and it doesn't look it at all. If any mother was looking for a station wagon for her kids then this would be it but also if even a teen age adult like my self, can own a car like this and not fell like an idiot driving a station wagon.

Pros: Handles like a normal car, a more than normal car, it looks great, it brakes excellent

Cons: It's a station wagon, acceleration not terrific, compared to say a Rocket, but it is a station
wagon.

Fun — I like the appearance of my car, and it's good on gas. The only thing thats broken on it is the AC and it's never been in the shop for as long as I’ve had it. Takes off pretty fast on dirt and handles great all the way up to 80 on dirt. Not worried about the broken AC, even in the summer time. (Haven’t gotten it above 80 on dirt yet)

Pros: Sounds good for haveing all factory parts. Is fun for dirt racing.

Cons: My AC went out.

If You Do High Mileage Avoid It, If You Dont Then Youve Got To Own One. — the car is a hoot to drive, hitting 5000 rpm and feeling the kick in your ass from secondary turbo has a huge grin factor. Ultra practical with loads of space and also very good in the snow with its 4wd.

Primary Use: Commuting to work

Pros: twin turbo boosting gives you a huge grin.

Cons: petrol consumption is high.

I think this car doesn’t hold any value as a 2019 is selling for 20,000.00. I am looking for something reliable that when I go to trade it back in, it’s worth something and I’m not in the hole. The ca... Read More
