Great car for kids and dogs - I don't worry about spills or messes.
Love that it is an SUV - I like being up off the ground. It's easy to get my kids in and out of without having to be bent down or squatting. I also love that the back is tough plastic so it is easy to clean out without worrying about ruining carpet. I wish it was more tech friendly - given it is older, but I wish I had a satellite radio and even perhaps remote start - would be helpful with kiddos.
