What some members have done is cut a kitchen sponge and stick a small piece of it in the drain hole to allow it to still drain but it prevents the dust from coming up.

are there seals on the doors? Some may fall off.

Yeah, there's thick seals on both. They're in great condition, but if there's a drain hole on the bottom of the colder that could be the issue. I'll have to check it out in the spring.

I originally had planned to go with the 2014 infotainment system, but anything higher than 2012 won't interface. At last that's what I've seen...

For the record, I know next to nothing about electrical.

And I've got trouble luck when it comes to aftermarket systems. There's a Tesla styled one I've been looking at as a plan B but the trade off is that id lose my two cigarette ports under my HVAC.

So that means something that is looking at temp sensor.

Do avy have ambient air temp other then interior for AC?

Or maybe you have some crappy ground, connector, solder joint somewhere that does niot like cold air and loses good connection.

Last forever if your Wallet is full.

Engine can always be replaced or rebuilt
Tranny and other parts can be rebuilt or replaced...

Money is what drives car life.

Yes we are the original owners and have done  regular oil changes etc. It  is starting to show some surface rust on the rear quarters so I need to do something about  that.  I think we will probably end up keeping it  to a while longer. Maybe get a some car to reduce mileage on the Event.

So far, I have received zero reply's or interest. Just replaced rear rotors, pads and right rear caliper.
Now lowering the price to $4,000. Here are some interesting numbers from my spread sheet.
I have owned it for 6.3 years, spent $12.950 in repairs, driven it 51,923 miles or 676 miles per month, mileage now is 277,008.  The cost of repairs has been $168.62 per month.  Average fuel mileage was 14.49 MPG, average fuel cost $ 0.18 per mile.

This his been a very good vehicle, so do you see why I want another one. I'll deliver it anywhere in USA.

There are many variables which can affect the longevity of any vehicle. Proper preventative maintenance and limiting exposure to harsh environments can have a big effect on longevity.
If you read the threads about  "high mileage clubs" and other related topics you will see that there are many AVs that have very high mileage and those that are from first generation AVs too (2002-2006).
You did not say if you are the original owner of the 2010 or not so if not it would just be a guess on previous maintenance and exposure/accidents etc.
As a general rule use your owner's manual service schedule as a guide and if unknown get those sections checked and serviced so you have a clean starting point. Then when possible get your AV on a lift and power-wash the underside and look for rust or damage. Cut out the rust and replace panels as needed, then treat with rust inhibitors and sealers. Be sure to check things like brake and fuel lines to check for corrosion as well. If you tackle the cancer of rust and properly maintain the mechanical parts there is no telling how long you could keep your AV on the road.
Good luck and I hope you have many happy and safe miles in your AV.
