Wow, this is a real awesome minivan. my ex-girlfriend 2 years ago put water in to the oil, and she filled totally the engine until the measure stick did pop out due to the immense pressure. By that time it has 140,000 miles. After 8 oil changes and a complete labor to remove the water, the van stills running with no problems. Today it just pass the 180,000 miles, still have the original rear brakes, and the air conditioning that freezes anyone.

This was a unavoidable gift from a friend that left the country, and it was definitively a bless.

Unfortunatley, I won't get to because someone ran into me and totalled it, but the car is worth more than the values put on it since it has been an excellent car. I would highly recommend it if were still made and definitely purchase again.
