Good choice in cars! I've never been a Mopar guy myself but really liked the 1st gen treps when they came out and, like you, needed something bigger for the family. Had to ditch that piece of s**t caravan I had and got a really good deal on an '01 trep se. Love it! Comfortable, roomy, handles nice all year, even in snow. One bit of caution, not to scare you, is if you develop a problem with the oil light flickering, chances are its the classic "oil light flicker TSB" that most of us have dealt with. Easy fix so don't panic if it happens. You can search the forum about it and if you ever need to do it, pm me and I've still got my invoice with the part numbers. Good luck with the new ride. I've had mine a year now with the 2.7L motor. Had 48 k miles on it last May and I'm up a little over 65 k miles now.
