This is a great van. There are minor mechanical issues with this model. If you can work on your own car and get one of these used you can save a ton of money. Honda and Toyota are twice a as much used. Transmissions are solid as long as you use Dodge approved fluid only (ATF +4) and nothing else. A Dodge transmission is $1,700 and a Toyota is $4,700 to replace.
Seats, room, comfort, power and fold flat seats. Power sliding doors are great for small kids.
Sway bar bushings need to be changed frequently. At $15 for the part I can change a lot of these for what a Honda van would have cost to buy.
