Thoughts on Land Rover (2000-2002) - Page 5

post #61 of 64
Test drove the 2008 Caravan earlier - thats a great vehicle for families. I would have loved to have been spoiled back there like I know kids will be.

Very smooth ride (Stow 'n Go)

Conversation Mirrors are awesome, its easy to see everyone back there

The tuner display was very responsive and easy to use - didn't get to use the MyGig or Sirius though

The shift stick being on the dash - that didn't seem bad at all. You don't think about it when you're using it.

I was in a Stow 'n Go and the Swivel 'n Go...
The Stow 'n Go was comfortable to ride in the back and the very back

Swivel 'n Go was very cool - I felt like a little kid back there, giddy about the TWO DVD players with different composite inputs (and an outlet) and the table in the middle AND the two friends (presumably) that would be swiveled facing me and playing - what a fun setup, haha

I'll post a pic later but we fit 7 average size adults in the van altogether, and it wasn't uncomfortable or tight. If you're over 6 feet you might not want to sit in the way back with the table in, because your knees would probably hit it - but its not geared toward you sitting back there anyway!

It has a cool green/blue lighting around the perimeter of the DVD player/lighting/AC peripheral on the ceiling - just to look cool!

All in all thats a really good minivan for a family - or anyone that wants to mystery machine around! Kids would be safe and spoiled - I recommend it.

I'll post a pic later.

I'm glad you recommend it, seems as if you looked at a fully loaded model.

The Mygig and Swivel & go seating were the 2 features that impressed me most.


........I like the new Caravan concept, however I might have to put flames on the side per Peyton Manning's commercial.

Yeah, flames on the side wouldn't be half bad for the Grand Caravan.

Here's a couple of shots I capped during our test drive last week:






It was a nice, comfy ride - I recommend. The only thing missing was perhaps some flames on the sides...

Sorry to bump, but the pics I took don't really show where the shift stick is on this one - its to the right of the steering wheel on the dash.


Personally it didn't bother me, it seemed somewhat normal, like a cross between a shift stick in the middle and one of those up/down sticks from behind the wheel.

Some people like it, some don't.
