"Bought this minivan used and drove it from California To Oklahoma and Arkansas and back 3 times! We put 136,000 miles on it and she never lets me down. Cupholders for all!! Very spacious and the third row of seats come in handy for separating fighting kids. They like that they can control the temperature back there and I like that I cant hear them when the radio is on. 4 doors are great and everyone has a window! This has helped my daughter from being carsick quite a few times. Removable middle seats and fold flat back seats allow for great hauling. Easy to drive, feels like a car! Moved 4 people from CA to OK and all of our necessary items fit (of course the roof rack came in handy also). Fits all the camping supplies AND 6 people very comfortably (7 is pushing it, but doable). Only cons about this minivan is that the motor for the drivers window wore out (because I use it so much) and in the winter it sounds funny until it warms up but that's okay! I have had it for 6 winters and it has never not started or broke down on me, nor does it overheat. My daughter drives it now and she says its cute for a minivan! Kids love it! I Love it! I think it kinda likes us too :)"

Pros: "Handles well, and engine size is more than adequat"

Cons: "Engine electronics after five years are failing"

Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 7

"Having owned this vehicle since new, the experience of owning this vehicle is mixed. The front suspension has been suspect since owning it, the transmission does not slide into the next gear without some form of thump, and the engine electronics (ignition packs, sensors) have been absolutley horrible and expensive to replace. The engine is down right peppy, and it handles very well. Traction control is excellent. the interior is what you would expect for a family mover, but overall has held up well for 8 years. Airbags are strategically placed and the van's appearance is still appealing. Would I get another one? Not really. The van performed adequately, but at the higher side of mileage, maintenance costs that requires a dealer to perform is a major cause for concern."
