We purchased our van at the beginning of 2004. Our van has pretty much seen it all. The first trip we took it on it was hit by Hurricane Charley. It now gets 14 mpg city and 16 mpg hwy. The 5.3 liter engine 0-60 is about 8 sec. though it's only RWD, it does excellent in rain, snow, and ice. It is very fun to drive. I will definitely consider buying another one of these vans!
I love it's power and acceleration. The engine has never had any problems and we've only had it tuned up once; new spark plugs, serpentine belt, etc.
The steering wheel shakes between 70 and 75 mph. It can be fixed. Nothing else, it's a great van!
