Big, poor handling, fuel sucking, behemoth
The door panels on the rear side, and rear doors snapped off and are held in place by screws.
Sometimes the intermittent wipers don't work.
It loses antifreeze somewhere.
It was 2 quarts low on oil when we last changed the oil.
The dome-lights stay on till the battery is dead if you don't shut a door all the way.
Sometimes it doesn't start well.
The rear side doors are hard to close. (Possibly due to the extended length.)
One time it would turn over, but wouldn't fire. We had to replace the coil or something.
We think the intake gaskets are going bad.
This van is a must have if you plan on hauling around a lot of people.
It has front and rear climate control.
The steering has a dead-spot that I don't like (about 2 inches)
It rides well for a one ton van, but not very well for a passenger van.
It sucks gas like its going out of style. (down to 13.5 mpg now)
It is not very good in the winter with 2 wheel drive.
The ABS is very nice on slick roads.
It stops well in most all conditions due to its excessive weight.
When you are turning on to a new road, it feels like you are going to tip over or something. It doesn't feel good any way.
It accelerates moderately well for its bulk, but not well enough to satisfy me.
The factory 2 1/2 or 3" exhaust sounds good when accelerating.
The seats have lots of room, but the van doesn't ride good enough to say it is comfortable.
The 4 removable bench seats are easy to remove to make a huge cargo area.
I would rate the styling two thumbs down.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
