"I have had this van for 6 years now. I got it when my grandma said she didn't want it anymore it had 150,000 on it. 255,000 on it now and it still starts. in the winter of 2013-14 when it was -40 here it started up on the first try. This van has some great driving dynamics a powerful engine that does not disappoint. My fuel mileage is about 29-35 The only thing that I have encountered that I do not like is the drive train. All wheel drive would have been the best thing for this van. Tune ups are time consuming when you do have to change the plugs and wires put 100,000 mile performance plugs on it makes it more efficient."

"This van was great until the transmission blew at 33,000, right after the warranty expired. The comfort is great. The plastic interior parts however are not constructed with any plan for long term, family use."

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 9

"this vehicle has been a good car for us. Gets decent gas mileage and the all-wheel drive has been a great option to have on the car. the premium cloth seats are still in excellent condition after many years. If i had one complaint, id say the car tends to plow when cornering. the front end just cant handle too much speed on tight turns."

"My van was sitting filty in a dirt lot with a faded old for sale in the window at a medical supply business. It took many weeks of messages and stopping in for them to even acknowledge they had a van for sale! Finally I got to talk to their mechanic who was supernice, he had just rebuilt the transmission by mistake and was told by the owner that thing has 250,000 miles on it, now it's your job to sell it and re=coup me some money on it. So the mechanic just put it on the side yard and let it sit, til I saw it. I took the dusty thing for a ride and everything worked including cold ac, sounded great, drove wonderful and we agreed on the price of $2,250. I couldn't wait to wash it, clean the upholstery and shampoo the carpets. It cleaned up like new!! I've had it for 3 years, put almost 30,000 miles on it and yes I've had alittle maintenance done here and there. But no carpayment = alittle maintenance, about $1500 in 3 years, not bad at all. Super good van. With lots of kids I love the automatic sliding door, no slaming door! Love it!"
