Rear driver's side speaker wiring is dead.
For the 10 years that this car has been in the family (my father owned it before me) it has held up surprisingly well. It's gone through 3 alternators and 6 starters since we've owned it, but I think that's minor when compared to people needing to replace transmissions every 2-3 years.
This is a roomy car, with a nice ride. I recommend it for tall, wide people like me.
After 15 years this car is still going strong, and should go for another 2 or 3 at least. Of course my wife wants a minivan... which I've heard are a lot less reliable than cars... even the Japanese ones.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
