EVERYTHING about this van was great until I saw all those bubbles in the paint at the bottom of the liftgate. It was rusting out from underneath and behind the paint! They didnt offer to do anything about it. I just bought a Ford Ranger a few months ago that had a spot on the tailgate doing the same thing. The dealer offered to fix it (and did) at no cost! The salesperson I talked to was very polite. They had dropped the price $3000 for their original asking price. I asked why? She said it was because it had been sitting there so long. Then, I said something about rust. Thats when she said there was some rust on it. I went outside and checked it and saw how bad it was. I went back inside and told her Id have to think about it. If they would have offered to fix it, even if I had to pay a little for that, I would probably have bought it. They didnt, so I didnt!

Van has good features, quite dirty, headlight half full of water. Pleasant dealership though, may buy another SUV I saw while I was there. Nice people.

Happy Dodge Owner! — I love the mini van. I knew I would after driving my mother in law's. The van has great storage the 2012 has made the seats easier to fold down. The storage bin up front are easy to open as well. The van kinda looks like a truck from the front and all van in the back. There are multiple ac charge points, seperate heat and cool settings for the front driver and passenger side as well as the back. The click bars for cars seats rock and make installing a seat take not alot of time. The windows in the back of the van come down as well. My son loves the buttons to open and close the doors on the van. I look forward to owning this van for 10 years or so.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: great storage, very comfortable, roomy, stylish, great for babies and teenagers.  Drives well and handles great.  I love the trim inside and I can operate the radio from the buttons on my steering wheel.  I love that!!!  The seats fold down easier than the 2010 model.

Cons: Wish it had better fuel mileage.  I traded the space in the back for the comfortable seats in the back.  My suv had more room in the back for groceries and hauling.  But I have a minivan not an suv anymore.

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.

Primary Use: Family transportation

Pros: Power, space, Looks/Style, utility.

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