I was looking for an AWD wagon with decent fuel economy. This was easy to load groceries, people or dogs. I averaged 25 mpg in town with automatic, after a leak in fuel injectors was fixed. Parts were hard to find, because it was sold in U.S. only 4 years. But it was sold longer in Canada under name: Prairie. There is a yahoo web group for Axxess owners: helps with mechanical questions and finding parts. My vehicle had an electric short somewhere when I bought it. Ceiling light never worked, front power windows worked when they wanted, radio quit. Three alternators in the last 10 months. Mechanic told me to sell it after last alternator was draining battery, on the day it was installed

We bought this car brand new from the
dealership in Dec.1999. This car has
been from MN to NY and back 3 times.
Good gas mileage and very comfortable
riding. Excellent excelleration. Even
my teenage boys say that it has a lot
of get up and go for a 4 cylinder
minivan. It has only been in the shop 3
times in all the years I have owned it.
Mainly exhaust pipe and tail pipe burn
throughs. Most recent problem is that
the mileage counter has stopped
working. But after 169,000 miles, I
don't think that's bad. I love this
car. It reminds me of that battery
bunny advertisement. It keeps going,
and going, and going...
What's that? This is the most frequently asked question regarding the Axxess. The Axxess replaces the now defunct Stanza wagon and is sandwiched between minivans and compact station wagons in size and utility. The Axxess offers interesting features such as available four-wheel drive and dual sliding passenger doors that allow the middle-row passengers an entrance or exit from either side of the vehicle.
