Since 1996, we used van for 8 trips of
~3200 miles from Edmonton Alberta to
Las Vegas. W/ two exceptions we took
the van off the road in the U.S., using
it for normal city driving only in
Canada. Nearly 50% of the mileage comes
from eight return trips on expressways.
The van's maintenance record is
Tires ~8900 miles; brakes replaced ~3
years ago, air-conditioning, rear
hydraulic lift, front end alignment and
other completed 2001. The windshield
has a crack, and there are several
scratches and dimples on its "autumn
brown" rust-free exterior.
