    my mom has a chrysler mini... thing is awesome... hauls azz for a minvan. Has tons and tons of storage space out back too. She hasnt had a single prob with it, even after the rear end got cruuuushed by a Dodge 2500 a few years back. Guess the shop knew what it was doin'. /forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif best part tho was that the front end of that dodge was just destroyed... wouldnt be surprised at all if it was totalled consider all the engine compartment carnage that musta resulted.

    Those newer body style Dodges(1994-2002) crumble up pretty good.

    YEa we had a 97 that we traded for the exploder. Supposedly they fixed the problems with the newer trans last year. Atleast its more comfortable than the exploder. And with the 7/70 bumper-tobumper extended warranty and considering she puts about 6k miles a year on her cars I don't think we'll have any problems.
