We have had this car for many years and from day one it has been a lemon on wheels. We know the previous owners quite well, and they bought it new. This car is inherently unreliable. Since the day we bought it, it has had it's problems and we have taken it to the dealership and to a mechanic many many times and has cost us a fortune. We probably spent more money than the amount we paid for it just trying to keep it working. A few weeks ago, the van wouldn't let my daughter put it in park in the garage. DRIVERS BEWARE. It's a big hunkin mass of metal on wheels.
I can't say enough good things about this workhorse. It is a plain Jane but very dependable in all kinds of weather. I have over196,000 miles and although I have had a major overhaul of the engine, radiator, and alternator, it has proven to be a dependable and versatile vehicle. It continues to look good with its annual exterior wax job. I enjoy it so much that I just purchased a new Chrysler Limited van and I'm keeping this olde but goode. Chrysler makes the best minivan on the market!
purchased new,problems with the computer at 6 months dealer replaced, never had another problem,got extended warranty, used once, the dealer found some problems with the flex brake hose's said before it goes out of warranty do the brakes all around.Driven every day from new and never had a problem till 2002 always did the maintenance on this van,in ten years we had to do the transmission and replace a oxygen sensor Other than regular maintenaince this van has cost about 1500.00 can. for ten years. there is some minor things it needs now doing the timing belt/shocks/passager door is sagging now, little things plan on driving this van for another 5 years
This van has been good to me and my family, and it keeps plugging along year after year. It is wonderful for hauling stuff (Especially with the seats removed) and does a good job of towing my ski boat. My only complaint is the head gasket. One blew at 101,000 miles, and a second blew at 130,000. Other than those two incidents, it has been a very reliable vehicle.
I have owned this van since 1992 and used it as my primary vehicle until a year ago. It has 238,000 miles and the motor does not burn oil and has never been opened up. I have replaced the transmission once, the shocks once, and other repairs such as water pump and gaskets. It has the heavy duty towing package and I towed a boat across country when it had 200,000 miles. I will sell it when my wife buys a new car this year. Not because it has a problem but because we have too many cars. What a great van it has been! I will be sorry to see it go.
