Pros: "Always started, lots of cargo space."

Cons: "Lousy MPG."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 2

"Lots of little electronic problems; key-less entry failures, mysterious messages from the anti-theft system that nobody at the dealer could diagnose, tire-pressure warning system that gets it left and right sides confused, causing you to air up tires that are already over-inflated."

"I love this van a lot. I have 3 huge dogs, and with this van, each dog has it's own seat that I can seatbelt them into and we have no problems. Also, I love the gas mileage as I have to travel some ways to go grocery shopping or to the vet and it does great on highway and in town. I REALLY LOVE THIS VAN!!!. And so do my dogs."

"This car has been very good for us. We travel from Minnesota to Arizona and back every year. We have had very little problems--mostly of ordinary wear and tear. I wish we could get a new van with these kind of characteristics. (Some catagories in this review were unable to be completed.)"

Pros: "Great car for families with kids or dogs or both"

Cons: "Really miss a center console"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"It's a van. That's what it is; that's what it was designed to be; that's how you have to look at it. It's a good van, with lots of space, decent power, and pretty good looks. It may even have been a forerunner to the cross-overs you see everywhere today. It gets good gas mileage - 20 in town, 25 on the highway, it's dependable, and it's comfortable. I wish it had a center console; it has armrests instead. I wish it had a few more fancy dashboard indicators - like outside temp - it doesn't. But it does tell you what time it is, how far you have gone and what your average gas mileage is, and how much tire pressure is in each tire. It has Traction Control and whenever I start off too quickly on gravel, it tells me that the Traction Control is active. I like it. I'm going to miss it."

"Brakes squealed. Returned to dealer 12 times for repair. Heat stopped when idle. GM said this was normal.Left power door in rear unrepairable. Problem in design. Run from this vehicle. Had a Chevy Venture and loved it. Bought 7 GM vehicles (personal and work) in past 10 years. Because of my total disappointment in GM now, last vehicle was a JEEP."
