|Longtimemopar||I have had no problems with the performance of my van, but I had the V53 recall (clean ground area) done, oil change & tire rotation at Atlantic Chrysler in St. Augustine. In and out in an hour.|

|kidcharlemange||Installed my WeatherTech mats. Great coverage, and I really like the one piece design for the second and third row. Yes, they get in the way of stow and go a little bit, but I'll take that for the coverage especially in the winter. Stow and go is still plenty doable; just not as easy as before (no mats).|

Tuesday the 12v to 5v adapter will arrive for the AUKEY dash camera that came today. Will install it and wait a few days for the Weathertech front mats to arrive.

|Longtimemopar||Yesterday I had the oil & filter changed (haven't added oil since the last oil change 5,800 miles. The oil monitor didn't say it was time to change, I didn't want to wait any longer). Passenger side sliding door was lubed (it was a little noisy). Tires rotated. 17 point inspection. Recall U50 (manual park release) and Recall U64 (Reprogram powertrain control module) were done. Atlantic Dodge-Chrysler-Jeep did the work (not my closest dealership) in about an hour.|

Had a week long trip. Notes:
I can't really say I notice much of any difference driving with only me or or six adults in the van. Driving 75 to 80 mph on the trip home: right now dash reading is 30.1 mpg (gallons into miles would probably be 27+mpg). Really easy to pass someone going 60+mph and barely pushing the pedal, look down at the mph and see 85. ESS worked flawlessly. On the trip home ran into a bunch of love bugs ,(they will remove paint if not cleaned off), so as soon as I got home I washed the van. Noticed a small area on the right front edge of the hood has a little corrosion showing. Hadn't noticed that before. I thought I needed to add oil when filling with fuel, but it had only sat a few minutes before checking(approximately 5000 miles since oil change). Checked again after sitting approximately 10 minutes and the oil level was right in the middle. After 6 months, the passenger side door is a little noisy again (it was lubed right after I got it).
Overall opinion: while the van is not perfect, it does seem to be smooth operating van that I have done very little to other than adding fuel and washing at the car wash occasionally.

From the brochure, it allows 78% visible light transmittance, blocks 43% of solar energy, reflects 9% visible light and still provides 99% UV protection. Wife and I are getting up there in years and find it difficult to use the outside rearview mirror when backing up at night in my SUV that has darker tint (must buzz down driver side window). While most folks are interested in the cool looking darker tint, we mainly wanted the UV protection to save our skin and the leather interior. LLumar makes an even lighter version called "LLumar AIR 90" (allows 86% visible light tansmittance, but rejects only 28% of solar energy). Both products, perhaps more the AIR 90, are often used on top of factory tint for added resistance against solar energy.
FWIW, our previous '10 Town & Country was tinted with a similar light product and the leather interior looked almost new when I sold it to the first person to see it back on May 5. I'm a big believer in tint for UV protection.

Waking this thread up. I already did my HID/LED lights, my tints, etc. So I guess I'll just share what I did yesterday: I went to the Home Depot and got 5 bags of red natural mulch for the wife and the garden.
Man I love driving this thing around town...

I use to part own a tint shop back in the 90s and we only had the dyed tint material. I took my Pacifica to a lady that owns a shop that does wrap as I was having all of that chrome wrapped in black and she said she also did tint. I had the dealer add tint to just the front two windows as I was going to add another 35% on top and 5% on rear, she said it was cheap tint and she would redo and quoted me on adding tint on rear over the factory laminated glass. So I said ok, I want 20% in front and 5% on rear. I came the next day to get my van and as soon as I saw it I was pissed as the front were not dark enough to be 20% (35% is the legal limit) and she said it was 20% and said that it is ceramic tint and it is easier to see through, but still blocks the UV and all that other sun damaging stuff. Sure enough, I took my tint meter out and it was 19% light omittance! I still wish it were darker so I can't be seen screaming at idiots on the road, but it is easier to see out of at night and actually keeps the van cool.
