Good design /poor quality

ReviewI like the gas mileage and the responsive engine, but the Caravan is nicer to drive and feels more solid on the road. I had to replace the intake manifold gasket at 90000 kms, got partial payment from a GM goodwill warranty but had to replace valve lifters as well because antifreeze had leaked into the engine, cost out of own pocket about a thousand bucks. The body began to rust out prematurley along the roof line above the windsheild, the rocker panels, bottom of rear hatch, the hood and front fenders. I have had to replace 3 windsheild wiper motors at a cost of about 200 each (aftermarket )GM replacement was about 350. Water pump went at about 150000km, brakes shot at 110000kms,etc
Best FeaturesPeppy engine, handling is okay, starts in any weather, fuel mileage good, wife likes the way it drives
Worst FeaturesRedesign the wiper system, use better quality material, better warranty protection especially when there are obvious defects such as intake manifold gaskets, and premature rusting of body panels
