Summary:

Best vehicle I've ever owned

Faults:

It seems the front rotors and pads need replaced every 120,00 miles but I attribute that mostly to the higher autobahn speeds (90+ MPH) the van incurs here. Probably outside the design specs for normal driving for a US psec vehicle.

General Comments:

This van has been a complete joy - and it's worked very, very hard while here. It was bought new locally. It is a US spec vehicle even though we are living in Germany. We have driven it to the farthest corners of Europe. Other than a burned spark plug wire that came out of its mooring post and got fried on the block shortly after we got the van we've had almost no trouble with it. It will move along fine at autobahn speeds - even with a full load. Mileage is acceptable for 90+ MPH and comfort can't be better. This is our 4th van - all Chrysler products - and has been our best by far. It's been as good or better than any other vehicle we've ever had - and we've had plenty, including Honda, Toyota, Mazda, Volswagen, Buick, Cadillac, and Chevrolet.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
