It's a big pile of junk
Solenoid repair 2 weeks before Christmas of 2009. $1400.
Brakes slow to respond. Causes entire van to shake like it has the DTs. Dealer said there is no fix for that.
Transmission blew on Friday. Dealer says it will cost $4500 to repair. Umm... no thanks. Van is a total loss.
I'm not super upset because I paid $2500 for a used van with 109K on it, but I thought it would last a little longer than a year. I religiously changed the oil every 3K, and only used premium fuel.
The dealership I took the van to had old records for the vehicle, because the previous owners also took the van to that same place. The repair guy told me the van had a brand new transmission put in at 80K. I thought that was great news. I shouldn't have to worry about it. Well, that was delusional of me. I read somewhere these vehicles cost $40K brand new, back in the day. Gawd, I'd be so steamed if I paid that much for it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
