    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.

    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!

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    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!

    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.

    Primary Use: Family transportation

    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 ...
