We're on our second and have had great luck (at least mechanically) with them. They are also the only mini van out there built on a truck frame.

The 2wd also does some nice burnouts and drifts pretty well in the snow

I know it's a girly man vehicle and the new commercials are a complete insult to the old school hippie-head vans.

The only way you will get my ass in one is if I was dead.

Do you know what an Astro Van is? The don't make them anymore, so I doubt that they are making "new" commericals for them. And I drove an "old School Hippie-Head Van" thank you very much!
