Not the best . . .

Review

This vehicle looked very good when it was under warranty, but soon afterwards, multiple problems surfaced. Belts that required hours of labor to replace would break, brake systems requiring $6-700 repairs, air conditioning that never worked properly after about 50K miles. The electrical system was always suspect as well, with warning lights that came on randomly even when there was nothing wrong and windshield wipers that go on by themselves. I would not buy this or any other Chrysler product unless I knew I could get rid of it before the manufacturer's warranty expired.

mistery

Review

Made is USA, it should be the best. Very nice overall plush ride, cd & cassette. 3.8 V 6. great 20 mpg avg. Good enough power. AWD will be nice to have. BUT Neither the dealer nor my mechanic can NOT figure it out a dangerous problems It's been having. When making a turn the engine just dies or when in cruse control at 55 mph . It almost stalls ,RPMs go to zero, shuts off the CC but keeps running. We worry we might get rear ended.Spent $1000's the problem still there.Some of these vans R reliable,some R not.Due 2 thESE BAD glitches,no body can figure them out.

Overall experience is great. Rides well, lots of room, and has been VERY dependable - no mechanical concerns at all. I am ready to trade up to a new '03.

Same old Trasmissions

Review

We sold our caravan after the transmission went out twice.The serviceman from the Chrysler dealership told us that Chrysler had fixed the problem aand these vans had no transmision problems,WRONG!. Ours went out at 73,000.If you buy this van just save up your money and count on the transmission going out as a fact of life.It also has electrical problems.The wipers come on by themselves sometimes.Overall I'ts a good van except for worrying about when the transmission will go out next.

I can't stand this car. I have put more money into this poor excuse for a car. It has been nothing but trouble. THere is absolutely nothing redeeming about this car.

Review

We really love the way this vehicle looks and handles. The plush interior sold us right away. (Love at first site.) Then reality sat in. We are have had several electrical problems. 1.The windshield wipers comes on by themselves from time to time whenever the signal is used to make a turn. 2. We had to replace the motor in both drivers and passenger side windows 4 times, and now the passenger side window is going out again. 3. The power seats motor on the passenger's side has stop working completely. 4. The driver's side seats will not go up and back anymore. Now my transmission is going out

Great Van

Review

Since we brought our van in October it has been a great car. only now are we noticing a steering squeak when turning the wheel while in reverse. The 3.8L V6 is pretty quick on the highway and has excellent pickup! Roomy inside and very comfortable when we do long trips this is one of the best van you can buy used. In our opinion you should buy one if you found a great deal on it!
