I'd suggest widening the number of models you're searching for. What you want is a minivan that has been taken care of; that is for sale by its longtime owner (dealers will probably inflate the price past your budget); that has a meticulous description and has always been promptly repaired (with receipts to back that up); probably on Craigslist unless you know someone trustworthy getting rid of one. You may have to live with high milage, but meticulous previous ownership will be just as important for a $2k car anyway. The more models you're looking for, the greater the likelihood you'll find something good. Unless your local market is very large, it's probably worth also looking for at least Toyota Siennas, Honda Odysseys and Kia Sedonas as well just to give yourself more options. Those all have slightly better reliability than the Chrysler products anyway.
