Dependable

General Comments:

Although I have only owned this van for five months, I love it. It is used hard and heavily loaded at all times. It drives well, has plenty of power when needed, and it has never failed to start or left us stranded. My wife drives it to area flea markets 3-4 days a week with it loaded to the ceiling with merchandise and it never struggles to maintain speed. I hope in the long run it continues to impress me.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes

I posted this review. I did forget to mention that it is the 4.6 liter V-8.
