| ||What things have gone wrong with the car?||Road noise is very bad. You can't hear the radio or carry on a conversation with other passengers.Honda dealerships - they are rude and totally unhelpfulSmall - not a lot of room or storage capacity with all seats in useUnderpowered - the 4 cyl is too weak for a minivan4 doors - a weakness in 2000. Doors are awkward when you have so many vans with sliding doors.No true cupholders in the front doors, only juice-box holdersVery few bells and whistles - your basic B flat minivanRoad noise - did I say that already?|
| ||General comments?||We paid $21,000 in July 1997. This was the best van for the money back then. The 1997 Windstar did not have a driver's side sliding door. The Toyota was odd-looking and expensive. And, the Dodge couldn't stay off the recall list. All in all, it was a good van for our family when we had two kids. However, once our third child was born, it became too small. If you have more than two kids, the "magic seat" stays up all the time--so it becomes a moot point. Our recommendation: a very good, very reliable minivan for families with one or two kids. If you have three or more kids, or a tight space in your garage (because of 4 doors), there are better choices|
