    Pros: Puts point across
    Cons: Needs work

    Summary: I really liked the set-up of this ad. Good views of the vehicle and a clear voice. Good lighting and a clear picture. Although, I do think it should have been a little more verbal. A little biography of the van from the day she bought it would have ... read more

    Pros: likely to atract a lot of people
    Cons: none

    Summary: I'm sure the manufactures wouldn't want to see this ad on TV, but I think it would definitely get people's attention. I usually don't make small-ticket purchasing decisions based on one or two reviews, but I would definitely factor in reviews on a ... read more

    Pros: Its Free
    Cons: Has mechanical problems

    Summary: This is an interesting commercial. When I first viewed it, I thought it was a joke. Who "sells" a free minivan? But then the lady started telling the "customer" that it had so many problems and it began to make more sense. It is ... read more

    Pros: leg room, and overall space.
    Cons: lemony -lemon

    Summary: I just checked out the Plymouth Grand Voyager minivan - epinions commercial. Too - funny! I too view my minivan as a sucky - lemon. The shocks squeek all the time, the radio doesn't work, the doors stick, the childrens seatbelts have been ... read more

    Pros: none
    Cons: Unbelievable commercial

    Summary: Minivans are ok! I find it hard to believe no one would take a free minivan! She might have damaged the Minivan that is why is was so bad! I have a minivan and know that there might be a few problems but all cars usually have a few problems! This was ... read more

    Pros: creativity
    Cons: none

    Summary: This is a true example of great creative skills. They really showed there opinion of this minivan. But what kind was it again? what was wrong with it again? The brakes, or the transmission? Anyway, I had no problem figuring out that they did not like ... read more

    Pros: short
    Cons: better actors

    Summary: No catch to this one. Not a very interesting or catching commercial. This commercial really did not grab my attention. With all the commercials out there this one falls terrible short. I was not interested in given the commerical a chance. If I saw ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Easy to relate to!
    Cons: Could be longer

    Summary: I have reviewed every TV ad on this site, and this minivan is the last one I've done (until they add more). I can honestly say that I dig this ad and would love to see it on the air. From my experience, most everyone I know seems to have some ... read more

  • Original and Truthful

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Truth
    Cons: Actors

    Summary: The commercial was original. I really liked how there was the 'truth' about what the owner thought was wrong with the van. There was also people (probably actors) asking what the catch is about a 'FREE MINIVAN'. When the 'people' asked what the catch ... read more

  • The best one yet, if you ask me (which you did!)

    Jun 2, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Funny, good production
    Cons: It's a negative ad, so some folks might be offended

    Summary: The original crop of Epinions ads were, quite honestly, the reason I downloaded RealPlayer 7 in the first place. They were funny enough, but the "real-world" style of production left them feeling a little underdone - hard to hear in places, ... read more

  • I have been this frustrated with a vehicle myself.

    Pros: It got the point across about checking out what others say about the van.
    Cons: It gave too little information about the van.

    Summary: I like the way this commercial shows the frustration people feel after spending their hard earned money on a vehicle only to find out that it doesn't work very well. I think it would have had a better impact if she put the dealership in the ... read more

    Pros: Appeals to the average viewer
    Cons: Not enough information about, too short

    Summary: I think this epinion commercial was a very good one in terms of getting the TV watchers attention. The commercial is short and to the point however, it is not as elaborate as it could be. I am writing this review having not seen any other ... read more

    Pros: funny
    Cons: every car has a lemon from production

    Summary: I think it is great people speak their mind about bad products. I had a worse experience with a 95 chevy baretta. It makes me look back and think why did I buy a car they were going to stop making. There must be a good reason it is going out of ... read more

    Pros: Memorable, catchy commercial.
    Cons: Too short, need more responses from passersby.

    Summary: Who says you can't get something free nowadays, but who ever said life offers no guarantees was right, and this ad proves it. Novel idea about trying to give away your vehicle, and it helped me remember what the ad was trying to get across, their ... read more

    Pros: publicly showing distaste
    Cons: didn't tell us if she tried arbitration

    Summary: Why do car manufacturers continue time and again to sell us lemons? Do they think we really don't care if our cars run properly or not? If I'm going to pay a considerable amount for a product, it should be exactly the way it is shown in commercials or ... read more

  • Contrived and not natural

    May 4, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: None really.
    Cons: Contrived... fake... felt like they were acting not interacting

    Summary: The latest crop of commercials to come out of the Epinions camp has definitely been low brow. What I really enjoyed about the previous ones was that they actually seemed genuine instead of acted. That's what made me want to join Epinions the most. ... read more

  • MINIVAN AD: What This Ad Has That the Others Don't

    May 4, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Wonderfully simple, relates to a massive audience, funny in an endearing way
    Cons: Another mention of Epinions wouldn't hurt, could have flowed a little better.

    Summary: While I still don't think that this is the "perfect" commercial for Epinions, I feel that it has a leg up on many of the commercials we have witnessed so far. I'd first like to express my jealousy at being beaten to the punch: ... read more

  • Good Idea but lacks a little

    May 1, 2000 by
    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: Informational, good taste of humor
    Cons: Very one sided

    Summary: First of all I would like to say that is one of the best attempt yet. The idea is good and well executed. I just have one problem with it. It is too lapped-sided. I know how you feel about lemons, my Chevy Monte-Carlo has had many problems ... read more

    Rated a Very Helpful Review
    Pros: none
    Cons: none

    Summary: Perhaps, I'm just old, 51, or maybe my tastes have changed, or I've just gotten to the point where I don't like TV anymore or the commercials that people think would be or are great? I just viewed the latest commercials, the ... read more
