We love our van. Bought new has 110k miles. This van has pulled concrete carts, hauled 8 passengers, been filled with cement blocks, carried surf boards, moved us accross country and took us camping for two weeks this summer thru deserts (115f) and over mountains at 8,000ft. We take out the seats, place a bed inside and just cruise by those expensive motels. It will get over 24mpg if you set cruise under 60mph. Its a work horse!

2nd owner of this AWD and I now have 120,000 miles on it. Took it to Colorado Springs (from Pa.) this summer and had no problems. Van got between 18 and 20 MPG going 70-80 MPH but would get 24.5 going 55. In cColorado Springs it got 16.5 MPG. Only problems I ever had with van was a water pump at 115,000. It has been a good Van. Outstanding AWD in the snow. Better than my 4X4 truck. 4.3 cyl. probably the best 6 cyl. on market but could get better MPG.

Our experience with this van has been
excellent. It hauls 7 people plus ample
luggage, averages 21 mpg (RWD), and we
tow up to 6,000 lbs with it (rated for
5,000). No other vehicle we are aware
of offers this kind of utility AND gets
this kind of gas mileage. After 5 years
and 100k miles, it has never left us
stranded. We take care of it, and plan
to drive it as far as it will go. We
