Pros: "Great in snow (AWD version)"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 8

"Have owned since 2002 and have driven it regularly until the last 3 years. I put away my convertible in the winter and drive this AWD Beast in the winter. I can go anywhere and snow does not stop me in the harsh Indiana winters. The engine is still strong after 120K and does not burn oil."

"Great van and is very dependable this was a company van and only used during the summer months, everything works great on it. Oil changes and all maintance was kept up and oil changed every 3000 miles, tires on it bought just last year so they are pretty much new. The van was bought new buy the company owner I am the second owner."

"I used it mostly as a daily driver but we also drove it on vacations to Chicago, Jacksonville, Fl and as far as Texas. We never had any problems while on the road. It drove great. The gas mileage wasn't the greatest but not terrible. What a tough vehicle. I just wish I had bought it new to enjoy it longer."

"good looking nice driving still got most of the original power. alternater at 40k. lifters at less then 65K. driver side window motor. driver side mirror quit. dutch door handle & gas door lift asisters broke. the sliding door handle broke(12 years old). Heat broke almost emmediatlly and no dealer or repair man could ever fix it to last more then 10 days. we used after market plug in defroster. took a big long hard hit buying this van. still have it for the same reason we bought it ,the AWD . not so commin in 99 when we bought it the AWD that is.things broke too quikly. you couldnt keep up. we where wrapped up in trying to get the heat fixed as other issues continued to arise after the dutch door shocks & the alterntor then the driver side mirror we gave up on fixing unless it meant not running"
