Car is super reliable, and always starts. Changed catalytic converter at 280K miles. Still passes smog with super clean numbers. Great for highway travel. Goes down the road straight. Solid feel. Good visibility all around. Changed oil every 3,000 miles. Can do all my own maintenance. Love this vehicle.

I just got this Van but it is a joy to drive. Very comfortable. The Engine light everyone complains about is warning you that you are loading the engine in overdrive. It has a safety feature (read the manual) that modifies transmission settings to protect the engine when going up hill. Just push the little button and it will stay off. Overdrive is more for the long flat highways. The transmission will disable overdrive if you lug the engine requiring you to stop and turn off the vehicle to reset it. I love it and plan to have it a long time. It has real metal in it. Nissan engines are good for about 325,000 miles if you keep the oil changed ever 3k.

We've taken this mini van all over the US, some times pulling a light camper trailer. We took out the 3rd seat and get about 23 MPG for city driving. Van has needed very few repairs -- had to replace air conditioner is about all. Rolling over 200,000 and hate to get a different car. Wish it was still being made. Can't find another car that we'd like.

This van was my first car when i was 16. It has been very reliable when my parents bought it in 94. It was also a fun car to drive around. I wish i did not have to sell it. I will always remember that car.

I've had one for 15 years and love it! Still going strong, but I replaced the Transmission after 150000 miles because I was towing a camper around. It has 188,000 miles, and it just now is beginning to show some rust in one wheel well.well.
