I purchased the van with high kilometres, thinking I was saving. Not only was I faced with ongoing repair/maintenance issues, but the resale value plummetted. At 170,000km, in spite of being in excellent condition, I am forced to practically give the van away, as its reputation has now preceded it.
The van is extremely practical, comfortable, and enjoyable to drive; but unless purchased new, with all the warranty available to man, I would avoid buying another one.
My next vehicle will not be a Chrysler product.
