    I drove a Dodge Caravan for a few years as a company vehicle and I did not like it at all. It felt cheap, underpowered and did not have many options. Also spent quite a bit of time in the shop. It was just a regular van, not a stripped down "Fleet" type vehicle.
    When I got rid of the Dodge, I got a Ford Winstar and I really liked it (for a minivan). Loaded with options, tons of power (had it up to 130 mph in the desert of New Mexico fully loaded with equipment) and not in the shop one time. Problem is I don't think they make them any more.
    If you can afford it, the Honda Odyssey is great (for a minivan) but a bit pricey at around $26,000 US for a base model. I have never driven one, but I checked one out at a car show, and have several relatives who own them and they all love their Odyssey.

    ive always wondered why? my suburban will haul just as many people plus cargo... unless fuel economy is the culprit... so why trade down?
    Every normal man must be tempted at times, to spit on his hands, hoist the black flag, and begin slitting throats.
    I often wonder if the voices in my head ever get frustrated because I'm just too damn lazy to climb that clock tower.
