We've really enjoyed this vehicle. We bought it used with about 75,000
miles on it. We've put about 76,000 more on it. We did have some problem
with the electrical wiring--a small fire in the door and a squirrel ate the
electrical harness--but, other than that, repairs have been pretty minor.
Unlike many others we have not (touch wood) had to rebuild the
transmission. The transmission is a little temperamental (you would be too
with 151,000 miles on you!) but I've found that starting gently from a stop
helps solves the problem. My mechanic says that there is a lot of weight
that it needs to pull, so being gentle on the start from a stop will stand you in
Great space for kids. We loved the integrated car seats when they were
younger. Lots of room for the dogs too.
Four doors (oh, yeah, our new one has that) captains seats (oh, yeah, they
make that too) um... rear heat/air... I guess dodge has this design pretty
well nailed. Heated seats!
