"Overall in almost 6 years of ownership (new in Dec. 2013), the van has been an outstanding vehicle for myself and my 2 - 70 lb. dogs. The 3.6L V-6 runs best on high octane, but the greater mpg's make the price increase a wash. As with all of my new vehicles, the paint is treated with liquid Teflon and the undercarriage is fully undercoated with old fashion rubber /urethane to protect the fuel lines, brakes lines, and frame. At 58,000 miles, all is well, and the van still "lays rubber" if you don't feather the throttle. Fold-in-the-floor center seats are nice for dog beds, and it took "flying milk cartons" to make me realize that groceries ALWAYS go in the cavern behind the 3rd seat row. OEM tires are junk, but upgrading to Toyo tires for firmer side walls are best. With the dogs, I upgraded to Monroe truck shocks to stiffen rear handling, complete Monroe struts on fronts to achieve "sports car" type handling, and K & N washable air & cabin filter. From Ohio to Alabama at 70 - 75 mph, average was 27.5 mpg. Local Chrysler dealer (Ganley Aurora) is outstanding, so it seems best to take it there. GPS mapping is not as nice and big as my 2014 Ram 3500, but acceptable. Almost went with the model with heated seats, but the sales person did not know how to shut them off and our "cheeks were getting fried" during the test drive. I opted to buy the optional (yes, optional) spare temp. tire that mounts under the van directly below the front center console, but ended up calling AAA when I had a flat during a snow storm. Because I'm a guy, I upgraded the brakes for mountain driving with cross drilled & slotted rotors with carbon ceramic pads that will put my head through the windshield before the ABS has a chance to kick in. Corrosion will start eating up the OEM alloy rims, so I had mine powder coated in gloss black for a less expensive but great looking option. Great vehicle. "
