Hope to be an owner, need some input from experts!

In the 9 years this car was made, is there one year that stands out above the rest as "THE" year to purchase?

Best reliability?

Perceived value over time?

If the car was to become a rabid collector's item, which year would be more likely to be coveted the most?

Also, my wife has kind of a tricky low-back... is the car fairly easy to get in and out of, or do you have to 'fall' into it, kind of like a Corvette, etc.?

There may not be a right or a definitive answer to these questions, but if I'm spending almost 'new' money for a 6-10 year old car, would like for it to be the right one... know what I mean?

Thanks for any input!!! Already learned a lot from hanging out here!

This will give you model info:


As to ingress / egress that is one of the most difficult parts for those not so young and spry or with an infirmity.

Alot of people like the 03 and 04 models. Personal preference comes into play.
