"This is my second full size Dodge 3/4 ton van, Dodge calls it a "wagon" as it has seating and windows all around. Both based on a 12 pass setup, 127" wheelbase, the suspension package is head and shoulders better than the half ton version that sways and "wallows". The first one was a 1981, powered by a slant six and HD Torqueflite trans, it was bulletproof, had great gas mileage, but was fairly plain with a rubber floor and heavy vinyl seating. The paint quality was poor, the body needed work after 300,000 miles, but it was the family car, truck, and RV for more than 15 years. The 1996 was luxury by comparison, SLT package means power windows, locks, key-less entry, dark window tint all around, and attractive heavy cloth upholstery, chrome wheels, best of all front and back ice cold A/C. This van has the 5.2 L Magnum V8, lots of power, but averages 15 MPG, with the 4 speed OD transmission and tow package. Like it's predecessor this van at 165,000 miles has never broken down or been unreliable. We often took it to Florida for family vacations, approx. 1500 miles in 26 hours (each way). It always had regular maintenance. Now that the family is grown it doesn't get the use or the miles it used to. Rust has not been a problem in spite of New England salty winter roads and a home near the ocean. Worst problem is wind noise on the highway. Considering it's estimated value, I can't find a reason to sell it, or what vehicle could offer the versatility to replace it."

"bought it brand new in 1995, oil never got dirty in time for a change, belts wore twice as slow as expected, 20 MPG with only 165 dollars invested. 93k miles on January 28th, 2009 and still runs like the day i test drove it at the dealership in Texas. These are worth more than what the book says."
