Well we got over 160,000 miles out of the van. For the most part it has been fairly reliable, but it has many major design flaws that result in failures that you will have to fix (valve seal gaskets - $800 to $1,000; Front wheel bearings - $600; Transmission - $1500 TO $2000). The radio lights and gas gauge have not worked for years. We got $1250 for a trade-in, so if you buy one, you should plan on driving it into the ground.
Room, 8-passenger seating.
Design reliability and resale value. Too many predictable failures.
