Good find. Those vans are well rated by the critics and owners alike.

Fuelly is showing both 1997 and 1998 getting about the same MPG.

The 0.1L extra engine size in the 1998 also increases horsepower by 10, bringing it up to a whopping 150hp.

I have a feeling the thing would often be driven full throttle just to safely enter freeways. That's acceptable to me. I'd just plan to never pass someone. People don't like to be passed by a minivan, and they can prevent it with their greater ability to accelerate.
