Has been pretty good to me, considering

2000 Dodge Grand Caravan LE 4dr Minivan
I purchased the van at 40k miles after my ex totaled the '99 GC. It came from Canada (bad thing) originally and had 6k miles rolled off when brought into US. I now have 170k miles on it. In all, typical minor repairs with brakes and such. Trans done at 160k - not too bad really. Engine is a 3.8 and runs great - lots more power than the 3.3 I had before. Replaced the radiator - had a hole not due to defect, replaced the water pump at 120k or so - typical. It is getting to the point where more repairs need done - struts, front end work, tires, etc so I am dumping it. Bought a Nissan Sentra. Don't need a van any more. Considering I am not easy on cars, this one has held up pretty good!
Power, Interior, Hauling capacity, Roominess
Make it easier to work on - hard to get to spark plugs and wires, water pump, alternator, etc. Install a device that makes the front passenger invisible to the driver - hehe.
