Summary:

The Queen Mary on wheels

Faults:

One of the rear doors doesn't unlock with the button, but works OK manually.

Saggy rear struts on the tailgate.

Dashboard starting to crack.

Headlining falling down.

Loads of drive train noise.

Sluggish.

General Comments:

Electric everything, including side doors and tailgate.

Very comfortable and quiet - more so than my previous Voyager, and that was pretty peaceful inside.

Park brake actually works (in previous models they were woeful).

For a van, not bad to drive.

Absolutely feature packed.

My kids love it, and the ducted A/C is a big improvement on my 1997 model's dashboard only system.

Nicer than a Kia Carnival.

If you're thinking of buying one, see if the auto shudders from 1st to 2nd, or if there is a delay when you put it in drive. The auto box is complex and expensive to rebuild ($5000).

There is enough room to put my kids in and all of their bikes without using a bike rack.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
