Bottom Line: Dirt Cheap Comfortable Family Hauler — Performance: Decent, nothing special, but I don't need more. Build Quality: Interior and Exterior are holding up really well for a 13 year old van. Haven't had to do anything major to it, just basic maintanance stuff, and it's got 165k on it. Appearance: I don't look away from it in the parking lot, ha ha. It's a minivan, but at least has alloy wheels... Cost of Ownership: gets around 16-18 MPG in town and 22-24 highway. Maintenance is pretty cheap as I do it all myself, although changing spark plugs, fuel filter, and air filter is a little bit of a pain. Fun Factor: it's a minivan, so not really all that fun to drive, but it's way better than my 99 corolla for long road trips, and love to have the extra room too.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Top reason to drive it: cheap to buy, and cheap replacement parts

Cons: Reasons to avoid this car: it's 13 years old so something's got to give sooner or later.  Newer models have better MPG.

It Got Me From A To B. — Really? C'mon. It's a van. Not a sweet 60's Volks van, but a mid-nineties "grand" van. Acceleration was to be expected from a faded plum... thing, but I did like how it handled. MANY repairs needed, especially the brakes. Appearance, well... I think we all have an understanding about this topic. Gas mileage wasn't all that great, but dangit that thing could hold a lot of junk!

Primary Use: Sport/fun (spirited driving, track racing, off-roading, etc.)

Pros: Are you a pack-rat? Then you've come to the right place!

Cons: It's an eye-sore, even for the modern, everyday soccer mom.

Alright — cracked windshield, lotta miles, just bored of it! it is slow sometimes...great space for kids, and nice seats. I bought this van for 300 dollars. Ended up buying a transmission for 300. Nice van, been driven a lot, kids have room for a lot of toys and cups or their feet!

Pros: lotta seats

Cons: broken window, lots of miles.

It's Great, Good Power And Mileage (25mpg@65 Mph) For A Van. — Problem is, it is wearing out and I can't get all the parts I need even from the dealer. Not to mention how gold-plated dealer parts are! I have been burned a few times buying a replacement for the stock FM/AM/CD/Cassette player. Nothing is as good as the OEM for sunlight visibility and compatibiliby with the original wiring and variable intensity panel lighting. I can get all the parts I need for the running gear and body, but electrical parts are hard to come by and very expensive from the dealer and the stock radios are not even available from the Dodge dealers. The dealer offers to refurbish the old one for about $350.

Owner for 3 years, 3 months

Miles Driven per Year:16,000
