I noticed that other reviewers had transmission problems. We had NO problems with anything on this van during the time we owned it. At 103,000 miles, our mechanic suggested trading in as he could tell it would need a valve job and possible motor overhaul in the next 6 months or so. Since the blue book was not worth a $3000 motor job, we traded for a 2005 GC SXT. If it had not been for a major overhaul pending I would have kept it much longer. We were extremely pleased with our overall experience with this van. Loved it.
2nd sliding door!!!!! A great advantage over the old 1 sliding door.
The sliding doors were difficult to open from the inside. I have arthritis and the button you had to push with your thumb was horribly difficult to push. Usually had someone open the sliding door from the outside.
