This large step in purchasing a "Man- Van" was the result of our third child coming into this world. It replaced a 2003 Ford Taurus. I like the sporty exterior look, if you can say that about a mini-van. The interior is OK, but we did not opt for the leather seats so its what we paid for. We did get the "Stow-n-Go" seats which are great! My wife drives this primarily as I drive a Hemi Durango. For long trips I prefer the Durango for a couple reasons: It can get out of its own way on the highway, and gets better gas mileage with the MDS.
Back-up sensors so my wife does not hit anything, and the stow-n-go seats.
The 08 model year has addressed the issue with more horsepower. Even though we have the 200hp. V6, it is very weak in my opinion. I recommend not pulling into traffic if anything is coming! The gas mileage is terrible. It gets the same mpg as my Hemi Durango and has almost 150 less horsepower.
