"Okay - we all know this is a minivan (aka grocery getter)...but, if you have to find one that you like, this is definitely it. All power options, and, my Premiere has the dvd player as well (the kids, and I, when I ride back there with them) love it! Only wish it had come with an available sunroof - that would have been great. Engine, tranny, suspension, etc. are all very good, and self leveling system/air compressor get used many times over without fail. Dual power doors are great. Controls are all easy to use. Radio with cd and tape are convenient, and somehow, this radio seems to pick up some very distant stations - must be the combination of the external antenna and shape of the vehicle or something...I have taken the family on MANY trips over the last 5 1/2 years, many over 1000 one way, and no issues. The leather seats and flexibility of how they can be configured are nice. The front seats are powered and heated, and the back captains seats recline nicely. I did have to replace an A/C condenser (just out of warranty - ouch) this year, and the rear A/C went out once (a switch?), then, another time, it did not get cold until I played with it a little bit (again, 5 1/2 yr old minivan - what do you want, a BMW?). The only 3 "real" gripes I have are: 1. The dash lights seem to burn out occasionally, and the only way to repair is with a new gauge package, which can be costly; 2. The other switch lights seem to go out from time to time as well, which are less costly, but, inconvenient; 3. The engine, since new, sounds like there is " a bag of marbles loose in the cylinders", until fully warmed up. But, again, this is 5 1/2 years later, and there has never been a problem, and the noise does go away in about 5 minutes after start-up. I have been told by various service centers and dealerships (I checked to make sure I wasn't getting shanked) that this is "normal" and does not mean there is anything wrong. After 78k miles, I agree. I keep my vehicles clean and detailed, for the most part, so this van looks like new when clean. Oil consumption and maintenance are about average. If in the market, I would first recommend a CarFax report, a dealer inspection, then, BUY ONE! Whether you are looking to sell, or, looking to buy, the price seems "right". Enjoy!!"
