We purchased a 12 passenger (1993) & loved it, selling it at 210K miles when it was still going strong. We replaced it with a 1996 & drove it to 181K miles (and still going) and bought a newer one (2006).
We have used them as moving vans by easily removing the (heavy) seats. We love being able to pull a bench out for luggage & still having plenty of seating. I love the underseat storage for shoving a box to throw kids toys/books into or for stowing luggage.
