I purchased a 1998 that was in almost brand new condition. Not a nick, ding, scratch or scuff on it. Paint was in perfect condition. The best part is it only had 38,000 miles on it. This baby was a beauty, and a total score of a deal! The only thing I am not happy with at all is the power. Don't ever expect to gun it; this thing has no guts. Mine is the conversion style, and it is very comfortable. Although the passenger's seat does not go back very far and doesn't allow for big shoes. Last thing is, it has a bench seat in the back that converts into a bed, which is perfect for a teenager, but it's not good for an average height male.

I brought my Dodge Wagon/Van new in
1998 for 23,000.00 it has tunred out to
be the worst Van I have ever owned. The
people who sell them do a good job of
making them look good but they should
have taken, one for a test drive. The
big tires on this van make it fell like
it is going to blow over with every
little wind,and in the winter it is one
of the worst van around in snow.
Besides the fact it has limted power
with the a 6 cylinder, bad fuel
economy, hard to do a simple tune up,
bad air conditioning, its to bad that
no one at dodge wants to take the bull
of ram by the horn and fix it or at
least drive it.
A freshening this year includes better build quality, so we're told. Of note are the appearance of dual airbags in the revised dash and upgrades to the brakes, front doors and sound system. The V8 engines have also been relocated forward to reduce the size of that annoying "doghouse."
