Marin Terra Linda

Hello!
I am new here.
I would like to upgrade my 8 year old hybrid, but with the current situation with bikes it is very tricky.
By chance I found Marin Terra Linda 3 in my size, but I know nothing about the brand.
I currently own a Specialized Vita (female version of Sirrus) and Liv Tempt 0 (2021).
I love my hybrid, but it is an older model witb rim breaks. Terra Linda has many modern upgrades over my bike, notably disk brakes and thru axles, which are unheard of in this price range. My old hybrid has a carbon fork and 39 Shimano Acera/Alivio transmission. So no real upgrades in this respect.
Does someone have experience with this bike, or Marin Fairfax, which is its unisex version?
I would greatly appreciate any feedback.

Thank you!
Since then I have written to Marin and got response about the hubs on Terra Linda. I want to share the information here, since there is just so little on line about these bikes.
Terra Linda 1&2 use Joytech D762 hubs with loose ball bearings.
Terra Linda 3 uses Formula RX142 hub with sealed bearings.

It's spelled BRAKES not breaks, as in broken.
