"She creaks, she groans, her driver-side mirror whistles at high speed," says Loh, "yet I dig the Caravan for two reasons: (1) The flexibility and usefulness of Stow 'N Go.Loaded up two bicycles and camping gear and never once had to consider storage or stowage problems.A piece of advice for future updates: Have duplicate controls for the power front seats in the rear cabin so users don't have pop over to the first row to adjust the front seats to make room for folding the second row. (2) The powertrain is a little rough when you do weird things (i.e., abruptly getting off the gas while accelerating), but is otherwise a hoot to drive. And all shifts have that smooth, uninterrupted feel."
