dtownfb, you need to read my post a little harder. Chrysler reliability has improved significantly over the last few years, which is a fact. You can challenge and even deny it all you'd like, but it's a fact. No, Chrysler reliability is still not what Honda's is, and I doubt it ever will be. But Odyssey reliability is also not characteristic of most Honda cars. Go read about power door failures, rattles, squeaks, transmission failures, leaks, and a few recalls in between here at Edmunds.
As for Chrysler sales, they are still selling more than anyone else by a huge margin. Chrysler sells about 30k more vans each month than Honda does. Sure, their sales have declined gradually over the last few years because of increased competition, but what would you expect? Seven years ago the only van worth buying was a Chrysler, now you have about five or six worthy alternatives. The fact Chrysler sales have gradually decreased over the last few years says nothing negative about them, especially in a market with such intense competition from Honda, Toyota, and Ford. I think its amazing they sill sell so many vans with that kind of of competition.
In fact, Chryslers minivan sales are up about 2k units in April 2002 versus April 2001.
dmathews, I probably hate Ford even more than you do. In my opinion, it is the worst of the Big Three. But I wouldn't be so quick to bash someone driving a Ford if my ride was a 01 Odyssey. I think just about any Ford would be more exciting to drive than a Ody, even my grandma's 1994 Escort wagon...
