We've owned the van for 4 years and haven't had any significant problems until recently when it was found the dual electric fans were out. It'll cost close to $800 to replace at the dealership and there are indications that the lack of fans working (we don't know how long) has caused damage to the transmission...not sure how much that will cost. Overall the 3.3L engine has worked great, and we've enjoyed it for long trips. I want to like purchasing American vehicles and know my hard earned cash is going into a quality product, but I have to admit my next van may be a Honda Odyssey based on reliability. I don't think Chrysler is able to change its ways toward producing a quality product.
The dual sliding doors, smooth and quiet ride, comfortable seating.
It needs a heavier duty transmission. Also needs overall improvement in reliability of the engine and supporting systems. Chrysler could do it if they wanted to...they just won't change and Japan is going to beat them into the ground through customer attrition if they don't start changing soon.
