This WHITE, not so economical mini-van, is aptly named the "GUZZLER" due to the excessive fuel consumption that started at about 1000 miles and progressively increased until it is obviously a very poor choice where fuel efficiency is desired. Long distance via fwy dropped from 27/28 mpg to less than 20 mpg, usually below 18mpg. Around town, it is now ranges from 15-17 mpg. Fwy speeds are usually in the 55-60 mph range, and around Los Angeles streets, average speeds are below 35 all the time, but use is mixed between fwy and surface streets. It is obvious that something is seriously wrong with overall performance relative to the performance put out by the manufacturer and dealers. I have complained about this every time I have it serviced at the dealers, and GUZZLER now has over 25,000 miles. Would you purchase another Dodge vehicle of this type? A window 15 passenger van gets nearly this mileage and it can tow. Time to go European, Japanese, or DIESEL.

I know the USA can make better vehicles than this. I can. Trans is a dream. Engine never misses... a gas station. Can it be fixed? I bet it can! It is called QC/QA. Employees should have to buy it back at full price. Then it would be fixed. Japanese would call this loss of face. Very dangerous thing for an American Union to have loss of face. Too much of that is loss of JOB! A friend of Jack Spencer and Walter Ruther, aka MADE IN AMERICA! Make it mean something or we will be broke. More broke than we are now!
