Nice car Cyn, even in black . I have been driving small SUV's for 30 years, starting with a Chevy S-10 blazer, a Jeep Grand Cherokee, and now a Toyota Highlander. The Highlander has traction control, AWD and all the safety features of yours, and drives great, although unfortunately has many other issues (apparently unusual for a Toyota). They all have lasted for over 150,000 miles (except the Toyota, so far only 90,000). A car is only as old as the miles on it and the maintenance it has had - age in years has nothing to do with it, fortunately. We just bought BF a replacement car in Florida, a Mercury Grand Marquee (he loves them), 16 years old but impeccable with only 61,000 miles on it.
