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: solid quality ride, stow and go
Cons: electric drivers seat no up and down without changing anglesMostly love it! Somethings are not so good though. Power seat goes a million ways, but I can't get comfy in it. average 15 mpg, not too good for a vehicles that practically idles at 55 mph!
Pros: Sto N Go
Cons: Noisy interior
Advice: Live without Sto N Go and you'll get a quieter vehicle.Engine is a bit noisy - probably normal but due to poor sound insulation it's quite audible. Outside sounds seem to penetrate the cabin and the large hollow Sto n Go seat wells tend to amplify outside sound. The under carriage is reconfigured for the Sto n Go feature so the exhaust and spare tire changes have revised the underbody layout adversely resulting in more noise inside the vehicle. The SE Plus package offers cheap plastic looking interior doors that also lack sound deadening. Overall, I am dissatisfied with the interior noise level and corner cutting to save cost.
Pros: Sto-N-Go Seating
Cons: You have to move the front seats all the way up to sto the 2nd row seats.
Advice: Get the DVD playerThe stow-n-go seating is the best feature. The 3.8 L six has enough power to do the job(hello, it's a minivan not a Mustang).
