The interior is HUGE! It is laid out very well and is passenger/operator friendly. The sesating has leg room galore and there are plenty of storage areas.
At the time we purchased this in April 2005, it had more STANDARD safety features than anything on the market. Those standard features included curtain airbags, side impact airbags and traction control. Crash ratings could not be ignored either.
The 3.5 liter motor has been around a while and is a proven performer. I know that I can count on this motor and tranny for years to come. We currently have 36,000 miles on it and have not had one problem with either of those things.
There was a $1500 rebate at the time and that put it literally thousands of dollars below the next closest competitor for a comparably equipped van.
