2002 Mercury Villager - Estate (310A)
Pros: I just love the climate control, it works great. everyone was cool
Cons: if i had to pick, it might be lack of extra luggage room.
Advice: test drive one, 4 captain chairs are more comfortable then middle bench. easier in and out.I am a new owner of a 2002 villager estate. Have had this new van for 1 (one) week, one small trip so far and I just can't beleive how smooth and comfortable this one is. easy in and out for the passengers, luggage room, everyone rode in style and just loved it. great power when needed and I avg. about 27 miles per gallon.
2002 Chrysler Town and Country - EX FWD
Pros: Power doors
Cons: Dealer selection was limited
Advice: Drive the Town and Country last and you will understand why.Rides and Handles like a dream. Its hard to believe that you are driving a minivan. excellent sound system and extremly comfortable bucket seats. Best minivan value around!!!
2002 Dodge Grand Caravan - eL FWD
Pros: The easy in and out seats
Cons: I put in thicker floor mats and the drawer under the passenger seat won't open with the mat in place.
Advice: Dodge and Chrysler are virtually identical; go with the best deal you can get.This is my third Dodge/Plymouth mini-van. It is the best van I could find in terms of maximum cargo space and family comfort. The rear bed is relatively flat for cargo and the seats are easily removeable for more space. The individual seats are much easier to remove and replace than the bench seats in my '98 Grand Caravan.
2002 Chevrolet Express - G2500 Cargo
Pros: V6 Engine
Cons: The Dealer
Advice: Finance before you get to the dealerGreat work truck. Very comfortable ride empty or full. Ready for 200,000 miles at least.
2002 Chevrolet Venture - Value Van FWD Passenger
Pros: The soft ride, and steardiness of the vehicle
Cons: The change engine oil light is hard to reset
Advice: Buy it from a dealership that is known for serviceI own a 2000 Venture, I bought it new, and now have 42,000 miles on it, and I have had no problems with the vehicle, other than a burnt out wire leading to the fuel pump. Once the problem was found, no problems. I have nothing bad to say about the vehicle, but the dealership, is another issue.
2002 Kia Sedona - LX
Pros: table between the seats
Cons: to many small compartments all over the front cannot use cup holders
Advice: be cautious - the windshield will probably crack and it is $700.00 to replacewindshield cracked for no apparent reason. I know of 4 Sedona's that have this problem. KIA will not fix it. Other glass companies have told us the Sedona has a stress problem.
2002 Chrysler Town and Country - Limited FWD
Pros: Where do I start? Power everything (even hatch)
Cons: Tires look too small
Advice: If price isn't an obstacle get the limited edition it's worth it!Great acceleration and pick-up for a mini-van. All chryslers rock.
