This '97 Plymouth van has been one of
the best cars I've ever owned:
reliable, good mileage, cruise all day
at 70, plenty of room for kids and
junk. I was told recently that it has a
Mitsubishi engine, so that may explain
part of its overall excellence. This
van was my THIRD Plymouth van and I
would buy another -- if only Chrysler
still made them!
Changes for 1997 include updated transmission software, an upgraded antilock brake system and an enhanced accident response system that unlocks the doors and turns on the interior lights if the front airbags deploy. Additionally, Plymouth has made improvements to the cabin insulation (to reduce noise and vibration) and cassette stereo units. Standard lighting elements now include front map lights and liftgate flood lamps; a cargo bay power point is also part of the deal. New options include an eight-way power driver seat and an overhead console with a trip computer, compass and outside temperature display. A Rallye decor package is available on SE models -- it includes a roof rack, tinted glass, alloy wheels and various silver accents and decals. Rounding out the changes are new wheel covers for the base model.
