1999 Trans Sport
Handling, styling, cavernous interior.
Brakes, windshield wipers, stereo, I wish it had the driver's side slider.
With great trepidation, I traded my beloved 1990 Cherokee for a silver 1999 Trans Sport. Having driven the vehicle for almost 20,000 miles, I can say I am pleasantly surprised by the Trans Sport. It has adequate power, handles well and is surprisingly quiet. It pulls a pop-up camper with ease, even through the Adirondacks and Green Mountains. It carries a tremendous amount of "stuff" for camping. My complaints are few. One, the design of the windshield wipers is poor and I have had numerous problems with them in cold weather. Icing is the biggest problem. The brakes seem a bit weak, as the vehicle seems to take a great distance to stop. I like the looks of this van, the silver paint changes from a grey in low light, to a bright silver in the sun. The stereo died after a month and I will be replacing it with an aftermarket unit. It also handles tremendous amounts of snow with ease. All in all, despite a few quirks, I am quite pleased with my van.
