Bought new from dealer. Little things break too easy, outside sounds like it's inside, radio never worked right, air conditioning died in 2nd year, had to replace transmission (in 3rd year),fuel gage (4th year - broke down w/babies in the rain), front window seal (5th year) and rear side window seal (1st year). Will never buy a Dodge again!

I have had this van for two years. I
am in the process of trading it in for
a Toyota (I owned a Toyota prior to
buying this van). At 37,600 miles the
headlights started going out. I was
driving in the middle of the night and
the headlights went out on me. I am
lucky I didn't kill myself. Dodge
Dealer said it was an electrical
short? The car is only two years
old! Also had trouble with battery
disconnecting from its mount at a 1

Bought the van new and got a great
deal. I was leary with Dodge because
of past experiences with their
transmissions. So far, so good. I love
it. I'm constantly afraid something
will happen, but that's what the
warranty is for. Although overall I
love it. I wouldn't buy anything but a
minivan again. When you have kids you
can't beat the roominess.

This vehicle is very good to
drive.Handles well in traffic and seems
to have power enough for city
driving.Very comfortable and handles
six passengers with ease.Visibility is
good with pick-up style rear view
mirrors.The one thing I do not like is
the Mitsubishi 4 cyl.Quiet on the
road,but at low speed I can hear
rumbles of bearings it seems.

I bought the van because of the very low price, and room. It's quite comfortable,
I needed a car to get me to and from work that is comfy and roomy, and thats what I got. I have had problems w/ dodge cars in the past though, so I am still leary about the van, My alternator went out on my dodge stratus at 40,000 miles and it costed 900 buck to fix, what a rip off, plus a lot of dodge engine parts, you can only buy at dodge, so you are basically stuck w/ buying them from the dealer at outrageous prices. I'm kicking myself for not buying an SUV instead, I am actually trading the van in for a durango in a few weeks, much more useable for living in Washington state.
