In respect to my mini van brother hood, I will kick off the hot mini van thread!

Sold my 2009 mustang gt and upgraded to a 2010 Honda Odessy touring! Loaded with just every bell and whistle you can imagine!!!!

I don't regret it one minute!!!!!!!!

I can load her up with kids, family or helis and 30% planks!!!!!

And the most comfortable vehicle I have ever owned!

Highly Medicated for your protection......

We sold our Mitsubishi eclipse spyder for a Honda odyssey. 2 Honda's later we now have a loaded town and country. I'll never get rid of the mini van until the kids are gone and even then it might be hard to give up.

Sold my Yukon and got a Toyota Siennia Limited with all the bells and whistle. This has more room than my truck.

The only problem is that finding my mini van in a large parking lot is harder since I see tons of them now.

Mini vans are great for the RC world. I have a 94 Dodge Caravan only wish I had a newer one with the hide away seats.

Gearhead, how do you really feel about Dodges??

I also had a 94 Caravan and it was a perfect driver for this hobby.
Got me to many many funflys, and yes, gearhead, back home too.
Now have an '03, and serving me exactly the same......no complaints!

Sooo much utility for about anything except what would have to fit in
a pickup. I know there are many other type vehicles out there now
that would do the same job, and look a little (or a lot) "cooler",but
still going to have a hard time weaning myself off these things, when
it is finally time for a change.

Can haul just about anything including furniture. Have owned several Chrysler vans, thinking about replacing my 2004 T&C limited. I wished Chrysler would get their reliability issues resolved. The 04 is very comfortable to drive, has moon roof, nav, etc. But have had several issues with it. Thank goodness for an extended warranty. Probably a good vehicle now, has had lots of parts replaced on it.....

Think the next one is going to be 2011 Sienna.

An experienced mechanic once told me that he liked working on MOPARs because their owners had low expectations.

slap the dash caravan owners
I had this problem and after doing hours and hours of research this is how to repair this problem.

Remove the dash guage cluster
resolder the pins where it plugs in, there are 10 or so. All i did was touch the soldering iron to each pin for a few seconds till the original solder melted. This fixed mine !! Seems the solder will crack over the years

Now here is a smart man! Rather than screwing around you fixed the root of the problem.
