We really have enjoyed the Chrysler Mini vans we have owned. This is our third one and we have enjoyed the use and comfort of ride. We bought this unit new and now have 120,000 miles on it. The blower motor quit this winter for $200.00 repair. The heated seat was replaced under warranty on a as a recall as was the noisy power steering reservoir. We will however take a much more educated look at other models when we are ready to buy a new vehicle.

These are the best riding vans on the road. Yes, there are issues with parts such as a/c, sway bar bushings transmissions. However, we have owned these since 1987 & we have never had to replace a timing belt (They have chains), never any exhaust work, never any CV boots. Most parts are pretty reasonable too. Brakes jobs run about $200 per axle, whereas they cost about $700 on our Previa! It is critical to do preventive maintenance on these. Use snthetic transmission fluid & change it every 50K. Change your fuel filter too. Plugs, antifreeze & water pump should be done at 80K. We did our first brakes job at 78K & we sold it with 157K & the brakes were still good. Overall, a great value!

We bought this beautiful van used with 58,000 miles. We were so impressed with the features, the CD changer, the sound, the 3-zone climate control, the leather seats, how it handled. The driver's side window motor was replaced at 100,000 miles, and the passenger seat heater fixed when we first got it, but other than that, it has been a wonderfully comfortable, really nice looking, and totally reliable van that we have been very happy and thrilled to own. Unfortunately it was totalled at 134,000 miles, but the interior remained in tact and only minor injuries were sustained because of the seat and headrest and also due to the van's durability. We are now looking for another Limited van.

I hate this van. Purchased it 6 months ago with 56k on it. Have put 6k miles on it, and the list of repairs have been unbelievable. Whole new rack and pinion, check engine light keeps coming on, ABS light on, passenger window works sometimes, the electrical system is a joke, the tranny is junk, the doors work whenever. On two occasions my children could have been injured, once when the brake caliper locked up causing smoke and almost a fire, the second time the steering went out and I had to fight to keep it on the road and not into a hillside. My advice, RUN away now. DO yourself a favor and by foreign. Don't buy this van. It's the most expensive hunk of junk I've ever owned.

Purchased it with 30k miles on it. Drove it to 114k miles, all highway cruising miles. Transmission broke 1000 miles from home. Bought a rebuilt transmission. Drove 2 days, both new speed sensors went out. Replaced both. 2000 miles later, transmission breaks again, stranded 200 miles from home. Piece of JUNK!!! No wonder it's way cheaper then a Toyota or Honda.........
