Pros

Best fuel economy available in a minivan! 3.6 V-6 has plenty of power with the 6-speed automatic overdrive transmission.

Cons

A bit boxy looking but, hey, it's a minivan!

Perfect For Moving People Or Cargo With Economy And Style. — Love the Stow-n-Go seating, XM Satellite radio, 23 - 24 MPG around town. Feels quite sporty and fun to drive with lots of cool features. Way better value overall than Toyota Sienna or Honda Odyssey and much better fuel economy too!

Pros

Acres of space with the 'sto n go' seating

Cons

A real winner with the 'sto n go' seating BUT get the electric package for them or you will be sorry ... way to heavy middle that's really hard to store ... back row is easier to handle but still heavy on the arms and shoulders ...

Nice To Ride, Almost Perfect Seating — A costly Gas HOG at the pumps ... plain and simple ... you know the TV ads that show city is high but road is better ... well they lied ... you will ALWAYS get the city fuel consumption no matter how hard you try to get better ... BUT it is always has been and always will be "the best of the vans" no matter what brand you try ... AND they truly pee away the back brakes ... no matter how you try ... they only last less than 20,000 before you have to replace them ... just a poor design I guess.

Pros

Power, space, Looks/Style, utility.

Cons

Fuel economy is poor and the transmission (on economy setting) is very clunky.

Best All-around Vehicle For A Family With 2 Or More Kids On A Budget. — Love it for camping and long trips. Hate it for fuel economy and transmission performance. Still, I will probably buy another one when I'm done with this one because it's so effective at it's core goals of being a functional family vehicle.
