| ||General comments:||We have experienced no functional problems in almost 18 months of ownership. The only complaint I can make is a piece of weatherstripping from the front of the sliding doors fell off within a few months of ownership. This resulted in a very slight wind noise increase, but no water leaks as this was a secondary seal. The dealer took care of it promptly, but had to order replacements. Overall Chrysler has done their homework with this vehicle. It's not perfect, but it has been very good. Given that a minivan this is basically a 4200 lb. box, it is styled well and the handling and brakes are quite satisfactory. The 215 HP V6 is quiet and relatively powerful with.|
The CD+cassette sound system is very good, but all the buttons could be a little more straight forward to use. It takes too much concentration from the road.
The power sliding door on the passenger side works well, but is heavy and awkward to close manually. It is a big contrast to the driver side door which doesn't include the power option. In my opinion, the power sliding doors are a gimmick with relatively little practical value. Same for the power rear door.
