Amazing reliability...keep the oil changed regularly, the tires inflated and the gas tank filled, this "drives-like-a-car" minivan will take you further and longer for less.
Tremendous cargo space is available when needed; the foldup-slide forward middle seat opens up a sumptuous cavern that has moved its share of tonnage.
The V-6 engine is a peppy road burner, yet still delivers 22-26 mpg on the highway after 150K miles, if you have the proper foot for it.
Sliding side door, slide-forward middle seat give unparalled access to loading & unloading cargo - be they kids or crates...and the standard audio system is unbelievably awesome for this class. Rear seat 2nd controller for personal A/C is very nice for passengers.
Driver's side rear entry, better 3rd seat removal/storage. Right now, this thing is a boat anchor and difficult to remove or set in place since it must be positioned as the MIDDLE seat (sliding seat = rear seat with all seats configured.
