This van drives much like a car. It has a fluidity in movement with an excellent turn radius. Problems have all been minor. We had a plastic piece come off one of the windows, had to replace brakes both front and back. But overall an amazing deal.
I love the ergonomics of the cabin. It is easy to change the radio, cupholders are easily accessable, plus all the secret compartments!! The stow and go seating is the best thing ever. I'm not the strongest person ever and it is nice just putting seats up and down rather than taking anything out.
I wish the windows for the kids went down. I also wish the compartment under my cup holder opened. In between the two front seats is awkward. I bought a console but because of the plastic it does not sit level. We too have had problems with the brakes going before their time.
