Had to look high and low to finally
find this particular MPV. Bought used
with 28k miles, now closing in on 40k
and have had no mechanical problems
whatsoever. Went on a 4th of July
excursion to Lake Tahoe/Reno/Carson
City/Sacramento/San Francisco logging
over 1,500 miles and the Multi-Purpose
Passenger Vehicle ran solidly.

We found this vehicle's tranmission to
be very expensive to repair and
unreliable. The same is true with
other engine components. The
transmission cost almost $3,000 to
repair. The catalytic converter is
almost $600. Power window regulators
failed and the speedometer has been off
by 5 miles per hour since the purchase
of the vehicle.
