Great multipurpose vehicle
On my Kia, I have had problems with the third row windows staying closed.
When you take the headrests off any of the seats, the springs etc. pop out.
I have had the seat tray on the back of passenger front seat pop off.
Problems with the television almost immediately after buying it.
I have also had the coolant lines that run from the front to the rear heat rust out in the metal areas.
After all the "bad", I have to say that this motor/trans has been great. I have 4 kids and we live on a farm. I have a tow package on my van, and we have used this van to pull our enclosed trailer when we moved, our horse trailer, our tractor, hay etc. We have towed more things than I can remember with this van.
It has pretty good gas mileage, and all towing was done at distances under 100 miles on pretty flat terrain (Midwest).
My kids have been rough on it too, so as far as the interior, some things were just made cheaply or with poor design. Anything else I can attribute to normal wear and tear. I would recommend; the only thing this ride lacks is 4x4!
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
