Reliable except for transmission!!!!

1995 Dodge Caravan ES 3dr Minivan
I am not exactly sure what model I have. It's a unique combination of the 3.O, 6 cylinder engine with the very terrible, 3 speed auto transmission. Other than the 4 tansmission rebuilds including one replacement factory reman., the van has been extremely reliable. The engine has been wonderful, I get 23 mpg average, and other than the $4,000 I have spent on the tranny, and an occasional problem with the throttle control sensor, I love this vehicle. I have 143,000 miles on it, use it for camping with seats removed, and would continue to drive it indefinately if I was sure that the last rebuild would last beyond the 6,000 mile warranty!
Useable cargo space, especially with rear seats removed. Excellent gas mileage, good visibility, comfortable to drive.
Transmission, transmission, transmission. Also, folding rear seats that would make a bed like conversion vans.
