My car has been with me for over 10 years. It has taken me all over the country and I've put over 150,000 miles on it. It's performed in all weather conditions, sometimes even off road. There have been a few things that have gone wrong, but considering the length of ownership and use I have no complaints.
Story
In the aftermath of a huge blizzard, I was the only person I knew who could actually drive their car around town.
Pros
It has lots of storage space and the height of an SUV, but is still reasonable on gas mileage and can perform off the road a bit.
Cons
This car was never meant to go fast. Sometimes I would like more power when merging onto the freeway.

I purchased this vehicle because it was better to haul my kids around in than my truck. It is relatively small and economic. Getting in and out of the drivers seat is very easy as the height of the car is neither too high or too low. The front seats are roomy but there is very little leg room in the back seat, enough for small children but not for adults. It is an attractive vehicle and very easy to drive, handles well.
Story
I took my two young and one grown kids on a three week road trip from Washington state to Disneyland and back one summer. The car performed great and the trip was magical.
Pros
Gas mileage, 4 wheel drive, power windows and locks.
Cons
Lack of rear seat leg room.
