I've had just routine maintenance
problems with it, except for problems
with my door locking system and loss of
power to transmission shifter and
cruise control, all of which I've had
fixed twice. My major complaint is lack
of power and so-so gas mileage (21.2
Bought this highest rated van in 1998.
Wonderful comfort, able performer on the highway and in city.
Wind noise a distraction at highway speeds.
The removable 3rd row seat, although heavy to handle, along with removable 2nd row captains chairs makes the roomy rear better than a pickup.
We've handled many large loads, plywood, sheetrock, easily and out of the weather.
What sinks Chrysler is its miserable reliability.
Replaced a broken transmission 3,000 miles after the warranty expired, our experience with dealership
support after the sale was poor.
Too many expensive repair issues.
This was a great vehicle till we got over 70,000 miles on. Since have had it in the shop @ least 8 times for electrical/ not starting issues. The shop could never resolve the problem. All the gauges stop working while driving, still drives, but it is scary. They ask a lot for these new and I would never in my life buy another Chrysler product, not to mention some of the deaths related to these vans and Chrysler did not help the deceased family in the least. Steer clear of these. Sounds like a death trap to me. I'll probably have to give mine away because, so far I have NOT found a single dealer or person that will even look at it.
I bought the vehicle on a whim. My
wife swore she would never drive a
mini-van, so I bought one with 140K
miles for $5800.00 (a steal). With
the exception of an ABS speed sensor
needing replacement 9 months later,
the car has needed nothing. The car
now has 151K miles and runs like a
champ. The wife's Mercedes collects
dust in the garage! With 3 kids, it's
the ideal luxury family vehicle.
She'll never be without an LXI again.
In all, the best auto value available,
