Detailed Review:
The 3.8L engine's 200hp provided more get up and go than you'd ordinarily expect in a minivan. Acceleration was smooth but the engine tended to roar under heavy demand. The vans's handling will not be mistaken for that of a sports car, but the overall experience was very comfortable.
There were no difficulties in running the car through standard maneuvers like parallel parking and U-turns. On a negative note, the steering rate felt a bit uneven and required a short acclimatization period.
The dash was well laid out; all displays were clearly visible and all controls were within easy reach. The LED odometer was a gadgety touch that I liked. One flaw: There was no obvious way to switch the vent between recirculated and fresh air.
The overall fit and finish were far superior to all of its domestic competitors. The interior design was pleasing to the eye and soothing to the body. All seating locations were comfortable; head room in the rear seat was more than adequate for a 6'4' passenger.
