This is the finest vehicle I have ever owned, including a Lincoln Town Car of the land-yacht era.
It has a solid, reliable feel, extremely smooth ride and is a joy to drive. It offers plenty of power at all speeds, good fuel economy and the five speed automatic transmission is silky and seamless. The ride improves with a heavier load. Everything fits very tightly. There are no rattles or squeaks and wind noise is minimal for such a large vehicle.
Visibility is excellent and the tinted glass keeps the interior cool at all times.
I found it to be competitively priced with the big three US manufacturers, but they could not match the reliability factor that this van offers.
The seats fit in all the right places and we enjoy the fold-away third seat plus the extra storage capacity when it is in use.
The van has an abundance of cup holders and storage compartments.
For Canadian winters I think I will regret not ordering the AWD. I have a feeling the Michelin tires that came with the vehicle are not top-of-the-line. They seem to lose grip on wet payment too easily and squeal too readily on hot asphalt roadways.
I would highly recommend this vehicle for anyone considering a van. If money is not an issue, go for the XLE edition. The 17" wheels, sunroof, leather interior and radar-controlled cruise can only add to the performance and convenience of this great vehicle. Still priced well below the Chrysler T & C.
