Pros: This vehical doesn't have a favorite feature for me.
Cons: All the cost in repairs.The vehical has coat me lots money in repairs. The road noise is terrible for a van that cost over $30,000. A/C broke three times. Why would i recommend this vehicle to a friend an loose there friendship ? I could go on an on about this vehicle. I will use it as a junk vehicle, then scrap it rather than sell the trouble to someone else.
Pros: Side impact airbags
Advice: Don't hesitate, it is a great vehicle.This vehicle help save our lives in a recent accident. Every airbag deployed while it rolled over four times. It stayed intact and did it's job. We are thrilled to be alive!
Pros: The ride of the vehicle
Cons: Some minor problems with the sliding doors. Sensor wouldn't make contact at times. When driving down an interstate the right rear door open sensor came on while the veh. was in motion.This would cause you to stop, open and shut the door.
Advice: Check all safety of the vehicles that you are interested. Monterey is at the top.I didn't think that I would want to drive a 'mini van' once I got behind the wheel my opinion changed. The drive was smooth, vehicle had power and it was luxary.
Pros: ample headroom
Cons: Ididn,t buy it sooner
Advice: GET the 18in wheelsIam 6ft 8in.and fit just fine. It is a quiet ride and the 6 speed trans. is great. When you ask for power there is plenty and with 5 adults everone is comfortable.I would call it a best kept secert.
