A good value

2013 Dodge Grand Caravan SXT 4dr Minivan (3.6L 6cyl 6A)
2013 Grand Caravan SXT; currently with about 10,000 miles on it.
I really wouldn't consider any minivan that didn't have some version of Stow&Go.
I have the second row seats folded down almost as much as I have them up, and I wouldn't like having to remove the seat to free up that space, since you then have to leave it at home and can't haul passengers in that area.
Great power, good gas mileage-I get 27 at 70-75 mph (town mileage is not great, tho).
Quiet, smooth ride.
Much less expensive to buy than Honda or Toyota.
6 spd tranny is OK, but not as smooth or predictable as could be.
Driver's seat needs more rearward travel; legroom is limited.
Stow& Go seating.
Interior appearance, seat comfort.
Power doors & tailgate.
Tilt & telescope steering wheel.
Luggage carrier bars that stow in the side bars rather than remaining in place all the time.
Good sound system.
Power driver seat is not std until you get up to the Crew model.
This is ridiculous that it is not std on the SXT.
The front seats, particularly the driver's seat, need another inch or two of rearward travel.
C'mon, Chrysler engineers, get that transmission shifting sorted out right; it's smooth as butter one time, then jerks and clunks the next.
And while you're at it, make the selectable shift actually select a gear rather than limit the upshift.
It's nice to be able to start in 2nd, 3rd, or even 4th for traction on snow.
