I still own this vehicle I wish I got it new. This van reminds me of old faithful. It is great mechanically, still. It is a sound van. It seats 15 passengers. Great for the kids. Seats do not remove easily for cargo but the 8 cylinder motor is strong enough to pull a large trailer. Handling is a little loose at faster speeds. I have an outside to inside air leek that gushes into the driver side cab. Easy to clean floors with the rubber flooring, great for the messy kids. Not so good gas mileage. I get around 10 mpg in the city. 14 over the road. Just BASIC up keep and it starts up every time. Even in cold weather.
the size of the van and the motor. are great very sturdy. warms up and cool off quickly. between 5 F - 105 f so even if it's cold or hot. very reliable van.
Driver side room. When I shut the door I hit myself with the arm rest every time. Limit the big vents from the outside. Bigger side mirrors. Very small for a big van. Sound system poor.
