My vehicle has a lot of get up and go. It goes up a mountain good.
I love my minivan. It's good on gas. It has some things about it that surprised me. When I get on the road, the doors locked automatically. And when I get out of my van the lights in the back stay on for a few moments, then they go off. That's probably to see to get things out or for children to see. I really like that. Also when I have the radio on & turn the motor off, the radio stays on for a few minutes longer. The seats recline. And I really love that, because I have to wait on my daughter a lot or I am in really bad health, so comfort means a lot to me. In fact, I like this van more than any vehicle I have owned. Also my van always starts. Its size is just right. My grandchildren love it too. It drives really good & it rides really good. I hit a very large hole while driving at night, that I have to get fixed. It makes a crackling sound, but is still going strong. It has large door pockets that I love. And it has places to store things in the back of the seats. The seats are very comfortable. It even has a lit up temperature, time and direction light on it. It has a dial to change the headlights, and other lights. One of the doors shuts itself. It has cup holders that are adjustable. It has a really great sounding radio that has subwoofers. It has side mirrors that adjust with a dial or with a click. It has a little hidden TV & vcr for the backseat passengers. It has seats that come out. It beeps when a door is not shut or us not shut good. It has all kinds if lights that come on when things are not the way they're supposed to be. Its essentially a smart car, I'd say. Its all I ever wanted in a vehicle. It also turns very sharply, which is so important. My van is the first vehicle I have ever seen that gets immediately cool when I put the air conditioner on. I bet the heat will be the same way. The roof is sagging, but the Walmart guy said they have a glue that will work. So it has very little problems. Also, the air conditioner works with the motor off, when it is needed. Under the hood looks good too. The van amazes me.
Wonderful and economical family vehicle.
The car has over 200, 000 miles on it and has never had a major repair. It has experienced two front end accidents and has remained reliable after body repairs. Car has been consistent on gas mileage and has been more efficient on long distant vacations. The only difficulty has been power to passenger side door remote. The door will not respond when activated by remote and has to be released manually, button pushed and then will retract. Was difficult, initially, when attempting to activate DVD system. Instruction manual was not clear in operation. Cargo space was incredible when lowering passenger seats into retaining pockets. Cargo space provided significant capacity for large items such as a sofa and loveseat in same load with all seat cushions and throw pillows.
Spacious family van all back doors can be opened or closed from the driver seat.
We have almost 100, 000 miles and no major problems. We have only had regular maintenance expenses. Very comfortable ride and very spacious the main drawback is the middle seats are very heavy and difficult to get out and back in. This feature would prevent us from buying another one as my husband cannot rotate seats without help. The third row seat folds down easily; however these seats are not as comfortable except for kids. We have the gold color so it barely shows any dirt on the outside and a taupe color inside which, again, shows very little dirt. Gas mileage has been pretty good for a van. Electric side doors open and also electric hatch - these can be opened by the driver very easily.

What Is The Rating System
We’re rating cars based on Style, Performance, Comfort, Quality, Safety, Features, and
categories start at 5 (average) and go up or down from there.
Style: Points can be earned or lost based on above- or below-average
interior and exterior style;
excellent or poor interior or exterior style; and exceptional (or very poor) style.
Performance: Points can be earned or lost based on powertrain
braking and handling
performance; ride quality; and transmission. An additional point can be awarded (or
exceptional circumstances, i.e. off-road prowess, or supercar credentials.
Comfort: Points can be earned or lost based on comfort in the front
back seats, or third-row
seats (where applicable); good or bad interior storage; and good cargo capacity. Cars,
trucks with significant cargo capacity can earn an additional point.
Safety: Cars with official crash data gain points for a five-star
rating by the NHTSA, or Top
Safety Pick status by the IIHS. Cars with Top Safety Pick+ status are awarded an
those advanced safety features. An additional point is awarded for cars with exceptional
features such as parking assistance, surround-view camera systems, or autonomous-driving
Cars with official crash data lose points for a four-star overall rating by NHTSA,
ratings by the
IIHS, any three-star NHTSA ratings, no standard rearview camera, poor outward vision, or
notes by the IIHS or federal testers. Cars without crash data aren’t given a rating at

added for exceptional available features, good customization options, good infotainment

Green: Cars are assigned a rating based on their EPA-estimated highway
ratings. Plug-in and battery-electric vehicles start at 8. Electric-only cars with a
of more than
250 miles; plug-in electric cars with an EV range of more than 50 miles; or cars with a
equivalent MPGe rating of more than 100 mpg earn a perfect score.

It’s not like grade school. Our ratings go from 1-10 with 5 being an average score. In
past, most of
our ratings have fallen between 6 and 8 and while our new ratings may have lower scores,

How Do We Get There?
For most ratings, we start at 5 and work our way up—or down. Cars gain and lose points

Some of our ratings are based on specific criteria. Safety ratings, for example, are
crash data from both of the major U.S. safety organizations. Green scores are calculated
estimates from the EPA.
All of our ratings are open to the public. Wherever possible, we’ll tell you how we’ve

why we arrived at the score we did.
We’ve added an “N/A” rating. For cars without official crash safety ratings or other
authorities, we’ve removed those numbers from the overall score to give readers a better
