Stress Reduction For Mothers With 3 Children (less Screams, Fights, & "r We There Yet?") — Performance was great but I also kept up to date with its maintenance (oil change, coolant, brakes, etc). Strong vehicle, could be full of people (including overweignt adults) and heavy cargo in the back and never slowed down. Appearance was not my concern (even though mine was white and looked good with navy interiors). It fit 10 adults (including driver) or 10 kids (middle and back seats). Drove it 10+ years and sold it to a fellow worker (with 125,000+ mileage). He traded it with a handyman for house repairs. The van is still running. Drivers seat could be more confortable. Definitedly needed an arm rest on the drivers right side.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Engine strength and performance. Also, I had 3 kids who "could not sit next to each other, not touch". They each had a seat (80% reduction on kid's screaming and fights reductions).

Cons: Front seats are uncomfortable (bad for long trips).  Could not move the seat's back and definitedly needed arm rests.
