Looking to buy a used minivan, any advice?

I have been looking around for a mini van and would like people's opinion on what they do and don't like about theirs.

Check with Consumer Reports online and make sure it isn't one of their "avoid buying" vehicles. They go back 10 years. Read reports written when it was new to see if the reviewer found any flaws. Do a search for any sites that are about it or that brand. Check recall lists. Make sure a competent mechanic or a friend who knows cars goes with you to check it out. I've found it pays to buy from a dealer who gives free car fax reports or to sign up with them for a month so you can check out many vehicles. For free, you can type in the Vin number and make sure it belongs to the car you are buying. Check the smaller car lots and individuals in small towns in the area because prices might be better.

The only problem I had with the one we bought many years ago is that the floor of the front seats was slanted so anything you dropped fell out when you opened the door.
