I Often Get Mistaken For A Soccer Mom. — This car is relatively old (157k miles), and my mother owned (and crashed) it before my dad handed it down to me and bought her a RAV4. The brakes are TERRIBLE, and I would never let anyone but myself drive the thing because to brake in a timely fashion takes some getting used to. It has excellent pick-up and speed for a minivan. It's very sturdy to have lasted through a year of my driving. The mileage is horrible, and it takes $90 to fill up the tank. Overall, it's a very good car and I like it, the only problem is it's just not ME.

Minivan Hardly Says It Right — This van has pulled our trailers, hauled our kids, taken us camping, seen a good bit of the US, and has been pretty reliable all along the way. Since it's no longer in production we had to buy a different make/model, otherwise we would have been quite happy buying another one just like this one.
