"I had a Regency Conversion Van model. 7 passenger leather seats and flip down TV with vcr and dvd. Plus rear passengers had own radio/cd player with headphone ports. Excellent when everyone wanted to go on a trip. I've owned full size vans from Chevrolet, Dodge, and Ford. I felt the drivers seat was too close to the door on this dodge. I know with doghouse there its tight, but the Chevy and Ford felt roomier when driving. Of course you don't buy a fullsize van for gas mileage but the Dodge had better mpg than my other vans. And by far this Dodge was more comfortable. Also handled better, but not evenly comparing since Chevy was a 3/4T and Ford was extended van."

"4 new tires, new Sony radio which does stuff like telling you the artist's name who is playing. No-one ever uses the 2 back seats, the front ones are always covered with serapes, if I hear the least noise, I am at my mechanic's place right away. I will drive this car to the East coast and back, and not sweat it. 3 guys yesterday told me what a clean car it is. Right on that. Paint excellent, average about 2500 miles each of the last 3 or 4 years. Cruise control, what else do you want to know? ABS brakes, did I get that right, 2 different people have offered to buy it without even looking inside or going up to it. I said no, what am I supposed to drive?"

"I have purchased this Dodge van used with only 6 months after it was bought from the dealer and still had warranty on it. From the get go I had a few problems that needed attention such as the side sliding door gasket pop out and hinder the door from closing properly unless slammed. The lever for adjusting the seats is extended outward too much and that got broke twice, once under warranty. Year 3rd had to replace a gas pipe. And worst of all problems was the computer box. The computer went bad after about 5 years showing engine and gauges lights on at first and then after further deterioration the vehicle would cease running. Had to replace the computer with a reputable shop. After about 3 years the replacement computer box went bad again. Replaced it at the Dodge dealership. Now past 2 years March 2015 and another computer problems which last time cost me about $800 to replace. I complained to Dodge and they replied with "we will forward this to our development department" and from there on started fanning my email with their Dodge commercials and deals. This vehicle has a soft bed liner in the cargo area and the plastic threshold covers the floor bed where the back doors are is breaking down and not durable enough. This vehicle is used for business and I took excellent care of it. Overall I am not a happy customer. With the cargo lines I would highly recommend getting a reverse back camera and alert system for s"
