People need to learn what constitutes an accurate and proper review
The reviews for this vehicle appear to be largely positive. The ones that are negative concern two different areas, both of which show ignorance in education. The first set of negative reviews are based on items that have NOTHING to do with the vehicle's performance and reliability whatsoever, such as tires constantly wearing. Solution? Don't buy the cheapest, crappiest brand of tire out there and you won't burn through them so quickly. Also, predominantly facing women, quit having a lead foot. Don't stomp on the gas the moment the light turns green, and don't stomp on your breaks at the last second when it's red. Starting and stopping should be gradual. Pure common sense. The second set of negative reviews are based on the "Joneses" mentality. Being a lazy idiot and thinking you need EVERYTHING in the car to be automated for you. When motors in seats and doors go, it ought to be common sense why. Get manually opening doors and you won't have this problem, and it will cost less to fix any door issues. The nature of technology is to break down. If you have more money than brains and want a self-driving car, expect the inevitable and the constant breakdown and failure of the technological aspects. Less computer crap in a car makes a better car. Computer crap designed to "assist" people to be better drivers? Those people don't deserve to have licenses in the first place! People who KNOW how to drive cars and how to handle them in certain situations, all this computer crap merely does is ensure a likely accident because it responds differently than how intelligent drivers were taught to respond. The more computer crap in your car, the more that is likely to go wrong with it. You can't blame the car's performance or reliability because you had more money than brains (or were an idiot trying to keep up with the Joneses) and bought something with all the useless bells and whistles on it that you DO NOT actually need. That being said, I just bought my first 2010 Dodge Grand Caravan, and thank God it's like a base model. Power locks and windows is all. It drives well and handles well. Hoping it's mileage is good, too. My sister's appeared to be, so if that's any indication, then I'm happy. Speaking of gas mileage, don't be saying it's crappy on mileage if you're not driving it correctly. If you stomp on the gas from the get-go, if you stomp on the gas on the highway and drive more than 10km over the speed limit, if you're an idiot who constantly turns his car off whenever at a complete stop (which uses MORE fuel to restart it than you would leaving it running), whenever you do stupid things that suck up more gas, your poor mileage is the result of YOUR stupidity--NOT the performance and reliability of the vehicle. Learn how to drive and much of your problems won't be problems. When turning corners, don't be an idiot and turn into the farthest lane. You turn into the NEAREST lane FIRST, and THEN signal and move into the far lane. I don't wait for you idiots any more. I turn according to the law. If you turn into the side of me because you're an idiot turning into the FARTHEST lane, then YOU are at fault and I look forward to suing you for negligence in your driving and having your license taken away from you as part of my settlement. I'm tired of stupid drivers who don't know the rules of the road. You had to pass three tests (or more), so you ought to know that manual inside and out and follow it to a T. There's no excuse for your lack of intelligence while driving!
