The first year we had the van, we had
to get work done on the electrical
system (crossed wires). No other
mechanical problems in 102000 miles.
Quite difficult to change own spark
plugs. We do have the 'phantom wipers',
but that is not really a problem. I
still get the same average gas mileage
today as I did when I bought it almost
7 years ago (~20mpg). I have also used
the back to haul drywall/couches,etc.
Overall, not bad.
Integrated child seats.
Locked storage under passenger seat.
