The unfortunate thing is cars seem to continue how they start out. If you have no problems that seems to continue throughout the life of your ownership -- assuming you do the maintentance of course. If it starts out as a garage queen then it is likely to continue to plague you down the road (pun intended). The exception to this seems to be Land Rover/RR which all start out as garage queens and after a fairly long time, when virtually everything that can be replaced was they turn into pretty bulletproof machines. Try the Highlander, Vera Cruz or Santa Fe. These offer excellent reliability (according to J. D. Power), a lot of content, low prices and great crash scores. Your present ride seems a bit tempermental and you might be a bit unforgiving of minor problems if I could venture an opinion. Good luck!
