I bought this van in '00 with a blown engine and 140,000 miles. I put a new 3800 v-6 in and it now has over 276,000 miles. Front suspension, starter, wheel bearings, AC compressor , cruise control, electric window motors and cracks in the windshield are problem areas.
Good mpg at 23 to 29. Good traction in snow with traction control. Plastic and fibreglass body means no rust. 3800 engine performs well. Comfortable, adjustable seats. Great view. Rear seats easily removed.
Suspension has been a weakness. Electric side door needs fuse reset often.Underbody is rusting. Swept back doors can be a hazard when opening at the top corners.
