5 year owner with 81,000 miles.
You're lucky to get 30k on the brakes.
I've had 4 serpentine and 3 ac belts
replaced along with 3 belt tensioners
($220 job). Belt problems every 12
months. The battery goes about a year
and a half. I worried about the amount
of tranny problems others have had so I
made sure I got the dealer to service
it ($80)at every 30k and it seems
fine. It has started to consume about
a qt of oil every 4000 miles. The paint
was wearing off in locations that the
sliding door rubber stopper would hit
when opened. Rust on the sliding door
track from the door bearing. The
headlight lens has a cloudy film on the
I liked the room of the Grand model and
the seats were comfortable. It drove
and rode like a car. Dayton Andrews
dealership had great service.
Make it more reliable. Make bench
seats lighter. Design the engine
compartment better so the spark plugs
are easy to replace. Make the bearing
on the sliding door from a non rusting
component. Higher quality paint, one
that does not chip. Better door
