I have owned the van less than a year
and now am on the second transmission
and 2nd motor which is a smoking
3.0....I dont mind the van since i got
it free, but this is a headache
vehicle.. Worse than my turbo grand
Child seats built in the 2nd row seat
A motor that doesnt keep getting bad
valve seals every 20,000
Had many problems with the a.c. until
last year when a body shop finally got
it fixed. Even though the a.c. isn't
ice cold, it does the job. Our problems
now include bad brakes, faulty
suspension, and queaky shocks. Our van
has been a great cruiser.Got almost 26
mpg while going threw Alabama. Its
engine keeps up a steady pace and only
when really put to the test does it
remind us that it's only 170 hp. We
hope to keep it around for a little
while longer. Unless the problems
Sound system not bad for a Plymouth.
Good cupholders. And super engine.
Bigger engine when going through the
hills in Alabama. More space behind the
The 3.3 V6 is very powerful for this vehicle. VERY spacious interior for a van of this size. Exterior SHORTER than most sedans but Interior twice the space. Great for many applications. Hauling kids, equipment, for work, hauling bikes, boats, camping equipment, tools, etc. Fuel economy is decent enough for everyday driver to work. Great for family trips. Be careful of the transmission, but properly maintained it'll run for a long time. Have had NO major problems at 170,000 miles. Shocks are starting to get weak but that's expected and an inexpensive fix. Plan to drive for another 5 years!
Powerful engine, cold air, big interior, removable seats.
This has been our work vehicle for most
of the 8 years we have owned it. It
has been very reliable for us. We had
the timing/drive belt replaced at about
70,000 miles and the transmission now
has a very slow leak. The 3.0L engine
still does not use any oil and gets
19mpg city and 23-24 mpg hwy driving
with the 3 speed automatic.
Easy handling. The standard size
handles and parks very easily.
The sliding side door on the driver's
side was added the next year. Many
times wished we had it.
