Getting firsthand information from an actual car owner is one sure way to get an idea of car performance once it leaves the lot. Autobytel features real consumer reviews that give the unbiased experience of a car.
Pros: Performance, styling, climate control, steering wheel radio control.
Cons: Lack of adjustable steering wheel.
Advice: Go for the LXi over the LX . The extra performance & luxury are worth the money.In this day of rising car costs, I was extremely impressed with the price of the LXi when compared to other makes/models. You get a lot more for your money. Style, comfort and quality at a comparatively reasonable price. Lack of an adjustable steering wheel is the only thing that keeps driver comfort from being perfect. Visibility has been sacrificed for styling but with a bit of driving this is easily adapted to.
Pros: The power sliding doors and power liftgate
Cons: The cup holders on the dashboard
Advice: Consider the E models. A lot of optional equipment is standardThis is my fifth minivan and won't be my last.I have the Ex model and it has everything that I need. I would like to have to have a better sound system but I can live with what I have. I have power everything plus three zone temp control. Acceleration is excellent and it cruises very nicely at 55 to 75 mph. I don't know any other minivan on the market that gives you more for your money. It is the best one yet. Joel B.

Advice: Buy at least the touring model with antilock brakesThis is the best new car experience I have enjoyed. Of 11 new cars I've owned since 1955 this is the first that had no reason to return to the dealer. I have owned it since 7-30-01 and driven 11,000 miles. Do I like it?? I am awaiting delivery of a 2003 GT PT.
Pros: The leather seats with the suede accents. Makes it VERY comfortable
Cons: Chrysler doesn't have a Bose stereo... but Infinity's not too bad.
Advice: If you can afford the limited, buy it. Get the 3.8 Liter engine.This van has it all! Total comfort and extremely nice seats. If you have the cash, get the LIMITED. The suede accents on the leather seats make the ride 'dreamy'. The 3.8L engine gives it the power you need to get up to speed quickly on the enterance ramp on the freeway. The climate control is nice for long trips. I like cold to keep me awake while i'm driving... my wife likes the heat. And the passengers in the back have control too! The only negative i can give is the stereo system... which isn't bad... but my Maxima has a BOSE stereo system and the Infinity isn't in it's league. BUT... all the features on this make it awesome. You can fit a full 4' X 8' sheet of Plywood or DryWall if you take out the rear seats. Another bad design is the Cup holder for driver. It's right next to stereo... so you can't put a supersize drink in it... but that's really nit-picking.
Cons: Blind Spots
Advice: Take one out for a test drivehad the lexus GS430, got the 300M. 300's not quite as fast but, my got does it ever hold onto the road! Wifes got the Mercedes sl600, but I have no qualms!
