Reliable and refined
Purchased new in 2005 and replaced 2012. Traveled 125000km. Always reliable and only item ever to require repair was the globe in the radio, brakes pads at 115k and normal filters ect. Only reason the car was replaced was that it was involved in a head-on crash with a Land-cruiser. The airbags worked and the body absorbed the impact very well. (The other car crossed onto the wrong side of the road)
Strong and very smooth and quite. Fantastic on Highways
Very good vehicle for the price
