I purchased this used with 75000 miles
on it 16 months ago and have put
100000 on it since. Although it cannot
be all things to everyone, it gets
pretty close for me. Power,
durability, road competence, and just
plain utility are excellent. There are
issues but not worth whining about
when price is factored. Overall value
is excellent. Strong towing vehicle.
Utility, Durability and overall safety.
Front tire wear a bit harsh, appears
shock/bearing related. Brakes are a
bit irratic and inconsistent on
different surface conditions.
I needed a big tough hauler.
This van is that. Not refined,
comfortable, quiet, easy to get into,
economic, but for some reason it feels
good TOWERING over everthing else
except semis. It's 5.9L engine pulls
this monster with seeming ease while
hauling HEAVY loads, the towing package
will pull trains. I had the standard
setup and it does fine. If you need to
get a lot of weight from here to there
and don't care a lot about comfort or
those irritating build/fit & finish
things, check this van out.
Strength, hauling ability, price
Next generation of vans please, maybe
borrow Damiler/Benz euro vans espcially
