The van was very reliable, had pleanty of power for required task, and was very versatile (could carry 8 people or 3/4 ton of bagged concrete). The turning radius was fabulous for a van. Only drawback was that the paint degraded very quickly.
Reliability and how easy it was to drive.
Cup holders on the dog house that will hold more than a small coffee cup. Too little foot room for the passenger. Nearly impossible to change the spark plugs.
