It's A Mini Van... What Do You Expect? — the paint peels, without rust. The windshield wipers break... CONSTANTLY. It guzzles gas like it's nobody's business. the breaks cease, the airbags don't work, it carries 7... I guess thats good. it stops pretty well when the breaks are working... it runs... gets me from point a to point b... so it can't be THAT bad... right?

LOTS of room!

Unless you're a mechanic dealing with the battery is difficult.

Great Mommy Mobile!!! — I am mother of 2 girls, one 8 the other 2 1/2. I babysit, a mommy "taxi driver", I shuddle kids everywhere. I love doing my errands in it. Lots of room for almost anything I have to haul. We bought it used with a bad battery. Not the van's fault of course. My only complaint thus far is the battery is in an awkward spot to jump start it. My husband, who is a mechanic changed the battery but said that a "normal person" would have to take it into a shop to swap the battery. It is in a difficult place. Other then that I have nothing major to complain. I get descent mileage. Not as good as my Cavaliar was but the same as our Lumina and Camaro. The power passanger door works ok, sometimes it chooses not to work but overall it hasn't failed me when I needed it.

Pros

Very versitle and reliable.

Cons

It comes with the "minivan" stigma

165

Jacob's Van — This is a decent utility type of vehicle. It has really been good to me with very few repairs and being very easy on maintenance. Because it is an American car some of the material is not quite top notch quality, i.e., the plastic piece on the floor by the rear hatch is loose because a rivet broke. However, that is the only problem I've had with the interior. Gas mileage is very decent. I find this vehicle very usefull and not at all costly. The price of the vehicle was reasonable, it's good on gas. I can haul around my sound equipmet and other items when needed, take a crew of people with me and tow a small trailor. Needless to say, I got a lot of bang for my buck. Now, since it is a minivan it comes with the minivan stigma. It is not a fashionable vehicle nor is it anything cute to look at. I have had to explain to just about everybody why a man in his early 20's would own this vehicle. It happens to be a great car and serves it's many purposes such as those I had mentioned. This vehicle wasn't build to be fun to drive as many would guess, though it does have a good solid ride. It has a V6 which allows me to do more than keep up with traffic. For being a van it handles very well with surprisingly tight steering, so it's nice that it's not a chore to drive. I would recommend a vehicle like this to someone who might not have the wallet for an SUV but needs versitility and space in their vehicle. Even after I bought my Saab, I just couldn't give up this van. I like to keep it around for various things.

Not Impressed — my car is owned and old! 11 yrs. so i'll say, she's had her run. i love how great of a family car she is. she provides entertainment for my kids thru the tv and entertainment for me thru my stereo w/ my ipod hook-up! aside, from the gas guzzling and problems here and there ....she's been a good girl for my family and I. :)

We Have Had Lots Of Memorial Trips. Expensive Repairs. — Our Venture has been a fair van. I have replaced all 4 Wheel bearings due to ABS Issues. Fuel Pump Level sensor went bad. Total A/C failure. Head Gaskets have been replaced. It has many rattles. We have taken care of it all but it has got to go. Anymore and Im going to become an drunk!! My wife loves it but she is not the one constantly repairing it. The power sliders are awsome. Glad they never failed.

Don't Recommend It Bad Experience — Good family van. sqeaks and rattles inside cabin. apperance is good. gas mileage is poor. Needs repairs in mechanics. Don't recommend it. It's a good purchase if willing to be repairing it, you'll get experience in auto mechanics. Handles well.

You can carry up to 8 people easily. Controls are simple and easily found.

Cons

This model didn't get a really good safety rating

Much Better Than The Dadge Caravan From Around The Same Time Period — I miss this van. It was awesome. When backing up, it felt like you were driving a bus, but the extended length and seating options allowed for up to 8 people or lots of room for stuff. They say it wasn't rated well for safety, well, buy one anyway and drive carefully. Also, the layout of the dashboard and controls I liked much better than the Dodge.

TV and VHS player, Leather Seats, Nice Radio, Solid Build, Fast For a Minivan

Cons

Has the porest crash test rating ever, Its also a minivan and can only be slightly cool

My Dads Car — The car hasnt had any main problems besides the transmission. Its performance it outstanding for a minivan but in the corners...well u know what i mean, It was the highest trim level available and has decent gas milage. Its not like u drive it fast but its fun to ride in on long trips with the TV or a PS2 and XBOX!!

Great for the Family, Windshield wipes

Nice Family Ride — Runs great lots of room, love the individual seats, makes for easy in & out, lots of storage (my lawn tractor fit in it). Never have to turn the lights on, therefore you don't forget to turn them off. Good on gas. Windshield wipers not the best design, any ice on them & they have to be reset back to the park position (pain in the bum). Great ride for any family.
