Summary:

Excellent for my needs

Faults:

Driver's seat power seat cover broke; did not fix. This happened at 20,000 miles; dealer won't replace it.

General Comments:

I use this van for an owner operator van, and drive high miles daily. I put on 11000/month, and it is smooth and handles excellent.

Plenty of power.

Handles excellent in heavy snow.

Brakes work excellent under extreme emergency conditions; no skidding or front end dipping.

Front seats are extremely uncomfortable. Plenty of rear cargo room and quiet.

Fuel economy in mixed driving is 23 and highway is 27.0. I have gotten as high as 33 MPG for 300 miles, but conditions were perfect.

The front interior is luxury with power windows, 8 way seats, mirrors/heated, cruise etc. Stereo is top notch.

Plan on driving to 400,000 miles. I have 87000 on now at 7 months old.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
