That is very subjective, I bought my 05 in Aug/2008 with 40,000 miles and now it has 125,000. My total on repairs and maintenance cost to date has been less than $1200 and that includes a new OEM battery ($200) and a new starter replacement ($400). The rest are brakes, fluids, filters, spark plugs and valve cover gasket. That does not includes a new set of tires. I'd just add that I do *most* of the work myself so that helps with the costs.
The thing that I love the most is how the SAV still driving and running like new! Safest vehicle on snow/ice/rain I have ever driven. (Read about Xdrive) You don't get that with a 7 year old 125000 miles jap.
