Currently drive a stripped down version of the 2011 Grand Caravan for my vanpool. I commute/drive 80 miles a day, and have sat in all seating positions.
Performance: 3.6L is fairly peppy, transmission could be programmed better to be more responsive and less jerky. Average 23 to 24 mpg. (70% hwy)
Comfort: Front seats are good. Middle seats are OK, granted you can slide it all the way back. Third row is tight on leg-room, even with middle seats all the way forward. (Stow n go design leaves little to no leg-room.) Anchor points for the middle seats' seat belts hinder 3rd row passengers from straddling their legs forward.
Overall, a good value, but not perfect.

I purchased it used as a 1 owner car.
It took me a while to come around to being a man in a van.
However, hauling the kids or lumber from Lowe's this thing did it all.
I was thoroughly impressed the cargo space and the versatility and ease of the folding seats.
I never once had a reliability issue with it.
The vehicle worked flawlessly the entire time I owned it.
I easily got 27mpg on the
highway despite the 25mpg rating.
The only reason I don't still drive it is because my wife's Ford Taurus X was falling apart to the tune of $2K with only 70K miles on it.
We had to trade in my Caravan with her car to make up the amount we were upside down in the Taurus X.
