This was a great vehicle till we got over 70,000 miles on. Since have had it in the shop @ least 8 times for electrical/ not starting issues. The shop could never resolve the problem. All the gauges stop working while driving, still drives, but it is scary. They ask a lot for these new and I would never in my life buy another Chrysler product, not to mention some of the deaths related to these vans and Chrysler did not help the deceased family in the least. Steer clear of these. Sounds like a death trap to me. I'll probably have to give mine away because, so far I have NOT found a single dealer or person that will even look at it.

One of the most pleasant driving vehicles there is on the open road. A nuisance to get around town in for me. My wife has no trouble. Heads had to be milled about 120,000 and rear wheel bearing went at 90,000. Driver's side electric window motor was replaced. Overall,a good vehicle, but would buy the shorter version.

Until recently this car has been
reliable but now it is a drain on my
I had a 92 minivan and put in 2

We bought our van used with 76,000
miles. It is a pleasure to drive and
we love the comfort inside. We have
taken several long trips in it and it
performed marvelously. We now have
138,000 miles and are looking at buying
another used van.

I AVERAGE OVER 20 MILES PER GALLON WITH
A 3.8 LITER ENGINE. ONLY PROBLEM WAS
WITH THE COMPUTER, WHEEL BEARING, AND
FAN SWITCH WHICH WAS UNDER WARRANTY.
THIS IS THE THIRD ONE OWNED AND THE
BEST YET. IT SEEMS TO GET BETTER AS IT
