My partner and I travel lots, and we
needed a van for cargo and people
hauling.I like the bucket seats
becouse the seating is the most
flexable than other minivans. I do
most repairs myself, and this is one
of the most easiest minivans to
service. The 3.1 V6 is underpowered,
but has good city fuel mileage. I
haven't had any major problems, yet.
The rear liftgate door is hard to
close, and there's a few squeeks and
rattles here and there. The low front
step in height makes it possable for
my grandmother to get in and out
without help, unlike other vans and
suvs. I'm happy with the APV. I'll own
another one, but with the 3.8 engine.
Rear bucket seats that easily pop out.
Low front step in height. Ease of
service and low service costs. The
never-rust, never ding fiberglass
body. Fuel mileage (city).
The underpowered 3.1 TBI engine.
Harsh, winey 3-speed automatic
transmission. The sharp, protudeing
corners on the front doors, (OUCH)!
Rear leg room. Poor brakes.
