A few repairs/runs forever

1994 Chevrolet Lumina Minivan 3dr Minivan
Itís had its share of repairs, but isn't at all bad for a car with 224,000 miles on it that still running great! Awesome power and the 3.8 liter motor has a cool little snarl when you get on it. By 30,000 miles these vans all had had the same problems; alternator (finally had to go with the bigger one after four replacements), a/c compressor (sensor leaked and also failed), tires (belts separated). Then it had few repairs for the next 100,000 miles or so. Weíre thinking of trading it in while itís still running well, but might just keep it another year.
3800 engine and transmission for their longevity and power.
Better A/C compressor and alternator, or at least a heads up about the alternator's ceartain failure (left my son and I stranded on the interstate). Thanks for that one, Chevrolet!
