      Chris I know you've had axle issues. What were the symptoms when they were failing?

      Really bad vibrations between 0-35 mph. It has since "cured" itself (I was driving down the highway at 75 mph and put the front all the way down) haven't had any issues in over a year

      I've got a nasty click on right hand turns though outer boot is leaking grease bad.

      My vibration went away after I was past 35mph. It came back once the car was under a load, like if I stomped the gas while cruising along. Its not so bad now, I can notice it sometimes if I'm driving really really low but its very mellow, not like it used to be.

      Anything over like 55 in my car is pretty bad. It comes and goes with the road though. I don't even care about it.

      Me to. We looked at a white with all black interior but the guy wanted more money and it was the base model. This one has the 18s, sunroof, steering wheel controls, mp3/bluetooth, etc etc

      I liked the mocha brown way more, she fell in love when she saw it in person.

      Very nice, I really like that color. Nothing better than a family hauler.

      So my TCM through a CEL today. Code was for the torque converter…..car is shifting fine and normal, but this may speed up the MT swap

      haha I know the Routan is made by Dodge, but honestly it still felt like a dub when driving it. The suspension and interior is made by VW
