Excellent Vehicle — Braking and handling are great. Acceleration is above average. Fuel economy is better than I expected. The seats fold down and can be removed easily. The traction on slippery roads is very good. Its a great family hauler, and great to travel in. This vehicle is easy to maintain, and is very durable.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Highway MPG is about 25. You can fit a lot of stuff and people in this van.

Cons: The body could be a little wider

Great Family Van For Any Road Trip Or Trip To The Grocery Store! — I like the van. Handles well. Drives well. Keeps the kids occupied with the DVD system. Is very smooth and great for long and short rides. I've had very few repairs, like brakes, and they were inexpensive. Even with all the miles, I think the van is great.

Pros: The can looks great.  What I like most is the DVD system.  The kids love it, and so do I.

Cons: Fuel economy could be better.

Worst Van We Ever Owned — i personally didn't like the van a lot, it wasn't very powerful, thigns were falling a part on it and felt rickety while driving and wasn't a good feel on the road. it also wasn't very appealing to us. it also guzzled a lot of gas, and cost a lot for maintenance.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: DVD player, ABS , crusie control

Cons: seven passenger(we needed 8), small trunk space, not stylish

Kids Love The Dvd Player. — It is a good van over all it has all the thing that I love in a van except for no under seat drawer and a back hatch pop and a little hard to get the kids in and out without moving the front seats up. and suck in any amount of snow

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Very user friendly. Confortable for long trips.

Cons: It is not a gas friendly van.
