Minivan question

Which would get us more miles and less maintenance costs
Toyota? Honda? Dodge?
We're looking to buy used
Opinions? Thoughts? Reviews?

Re: Minivan question

Used certified Toyota or Honda are equally good. My husband and I bothe worked for a Toyota dealership and owned both atoyota and ahonda minivan. They run for ever the average is 300 miles but some have gone many more. Dodge tends to have problems sooner then later and we own a dodge truck now,

Re: Minivan question

we have an 06 dodge grand caravan that we bought over 2yrs ago & we had no big problems w/ it. just basic maintence on it. we had to fix a few things on it but nothing that was a biggie. just the water pump & wipers. we have no other issues w/ it. i think some of it has to do w/ where u buy them from. some places do a quick fix to get the car sold other places fix them up right & sell reliable. good running cars.

We have an Ody. Absolutely love it. We got it used last year. It's a 2008 and had 23,000 miles. It's an EX-L with NAV and DVD.
They last forever and can take a huge beating.
