Trustworthy, but expensive to maintain
MAF sensor at 140k.
Electrical bits and bobs malfunctioning: constantly.
O2 sensor went out at 80k and 130k.
Turbo started lagging at 120k.
Heater core leaking at 130k.
Air intake literally fell apart at around 120k.
Many other issues along the way... you lose track.
Actually very posh, but in a dowdy way: like a wealthy grandma.
Had some get-up-and-go when running well.
The engine was absolutely reliable; too bad the components were not.
The all-wheel drive is very, very good with ice, but poor with any significant snow (perhaps because the car is so heavy).
Poor fuel efficiency for a decidedly familial station wagon. Diesel would have been better.
The core elements of this vehicle (engine, transmission, axles, and so on) worked flawlessly. All the stuff bolted on to them fell apart.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
