This vehicle has been great for my growing family so far. It drives well, has a ton of storage space, and is an overall nice minivan. This van drives well for the most part. The gas pedal is a little touchy, and took some getting used to. I've also noticed some vibration in the steering wheel when going higher speeds, which is a bit frustrating in a car that is only two years old. Otherwise though, it drives smoothly and works well. I like the touchscreen radio the van came with, and especially like the back up camera. This is a great feature, especially when you have young children at home. The driver seats are comfortable, and I really like that the movement on them is mechanical. I have noticed that the very back seats are quite hard though, and may be uncomfortable on a long drive.... (more)
Story
When we first purchased the van, my kids were super excited about the doors opening on their own. They would cheer every time.
Pros
Stow-and-go seats. Comfortable driver seats. Back-up camera. Spacious. Nice look.
Cons
Air conditioner is noisy. Touchy gas pedal. Steering wheel vibration.

I was worried about switching to a minivan, but we needed the space and it's what my wife wanted. I do most of the driving and was worried about having to drive around in a minivan. I can't say that it's the same as driving around a F150, but aside from perceived style it does have a good amount of storage. When the seats are up there is a good amount of storage in the stow and go storage under the seats. When the seats are down there is enough storage for most of the things I used to haul in my old pickup. You won't be taking this off-roading like you could with a truck, but it at least provides a comfy ride. We have 2 young children and they have no problems with this car. It rides smooth and doesn't make much noise. It does mention that it has options for towing, but I haven't nee... (more)
Story
We took a family vacation from Michigan to Florida and drove the whole way in the minivan. It was a great trip and we had no problems with the minivan. We bought DVD players for the kids to watch and it was a wonderful trip.
Pros
When seats are up there is plenty of space for kids toys or cloths in the stow and go bins. When the seats are down there is plenty or storage space for hauling things like furniture etc.. The ride is smooth The vehicle doesn't make much noise when operating. There is duel climate control in front and back.
Cons
Being a minivan means it's not as flashy as a pickup truck, but there's no way around that. It isn't going to be going off road. It seems to have the same gas mileage issues that larger vehicles suffer from.

They gave solid advice about what vehicle would best accommodate my family's needs as we add more members. We also wanted something with a warranty, and they pointed us in the best direction.

There was little to no sales pressure. The dealership had a large selection of the vehicle I was looking at, so I could compare features. The service department has a proven track record in my area. Our sales consultant was easy to work with. They are located close to my home.
