For someone who never wanted a minivan,
I sure can't live without mine! I
researched them all. The Montana
extended was the only one (at the time)
to have 8 seats that can all be moved
around. The engine and all the major
parts have never had to be serviced.
The brakes wear out fast and the cup
holders broke right away. The rubber
seals on the doors keep rotting out
even though I keep my van in the
garage! The kids' seat belts have been
replaced twice. Overall I'm VERY happy
with the van. It's dependable and the
important parts have always run well.
It's roomy, comfortable, and with the
suspension package upgrade, it drives
like a sedan, not a van.
Moveability of seats.
Music can be piped to the back.
LOTS of room for groceries in the back.
Built-in Air pump
Better cup holders
Better placement of front cupholders
Better quality seals and plastic pieces
on doors and dash
Better quality brakes
