Bought the car in 2005 with 162,000 miles. The van is very powerful, quick, and fuel efficient. The exterior styling is timeless and aggressive, something you don't see in minivans. I have a 3.8 Liter ES. The paint is slowly peeling off on the pillars and the pin striping is coming off. The car rusts very fast everywhere. The stereo buttons are very hard to press, and plastics are coming loose. The ABS stopped working at 169,000, power steering pump leaks a little, and AC has a leak. Year by year there are more leaks and a lot more rust. Gas mileage is excellent for a 3.8 liter engine, average 23 MPG.
3.8 liter engine, infinity audio, interior and exterior design, comfort.
Use higher quality paint and steel, have better part quality.
I bought this van new and have had nothing but problems with it. It has 170,000 miles on it and the things I have had to replace would take up this entire column. The major replacements are; the transmission twice,water pump, power steering pump, gas tank, radio, wiper motor, power windows, door locks, door hinges, etc. The only thing still working is the engine. No wonder the company is going out of business. I will never buy another Dodge
Repetitive problem with inside rear
view mirrow coming loose. Average
battery life 2 years. Rides and
handles exceptionally well, even after
eight years. Retains its stylish
looks. Bought a 2005 for the 'sto & go
Our 1996 came to us with 106K on the
odometer. I don't know about the
previous owners experience. It was
leased. We purchsed it at the bank
auction. It now has 240K miles with no
problems. It still looks great and is
in daily use along with our new,
flawless 2003 Chrysler T&C (21K
trouble free miles). Our only
complaint is the brakes. The rear
brakes are weak despite our best
efforts.?? No transmission problems
or engine problems. A fantastic van.
In fact, this was our third (86 & 88
previous)Chrysler van. Both had 200K+
miles when replaced. We've never
experienced the transmission problems
that seem to plauge other vans.
This is really a good looking van.
Very comfortable seats, drivers side
slider is wonderful. Very cold AC.
