Bought used in end of 1999, with the
3.8 Leter engine. Never had any major
problems. First Van even owned and
love it. But there are electrical
problems galore but fortunately none
have lead to a significant problem:
Engine light comes on and stays for
months - mechanic can't find anything
wrong, thus resets.
Interior lights frequently don't shut
off after closing doors for up to 30
minutes at a time.
Occasionally, the 'Door is open' alarm
does not shut off after the door is
'Door is open' light indicator
seemingly always shows that one of the
doors (or rear hatch) is open when, in
fact, they are all closed and double
Good power when needed. Good
At low speeds, when the trans. changes
from 1st to 2nd the van noticably
jumps. Make the rear 3rd seat weigh
less - it's a bear to remove by
oneself. Vans need full-size spares -
not donuts. Make the Spark Plugs
easier to get to.
