We bought this van at 198,000 miles. The van drove about 50 miles a day and never left us stranded. The heat worked excellent but the van used the old freon so we never got to try out the A/ C system. Finally died on us at 201,000 miles (transmission & fuel pump). Only thing we ever replaced was water pump. Very well built car and very reliable. Not bad for a $500 GM car.
The easy to use, multi layout seat. The generous cargo room. Sitting up high and getting a good view.
I wish this year would have used the 3.4 or 3.8 V6. The 3.1 was a bit sluggish at times to pull such a big van.
My Trans Sport was a great car, hardly
any problems at all. Never broke down,
only had to do minimal repairs, even
with driving back and forth from East
Coast to Midwest several times. It
was "t-boned" very hard last week and
flipped over. Driver walked away with
whiplash and a small scrape on hand.
Would have been dead in smaller or
worse-built car. I want another one.
Comfortable seats, lots of room, easy
handling, and lots of big windows.
Front door handles mechanisms tend to
break, making it impossible to open
from outside. Occaisional trouble with
electric window on drivers' side.
This van is fun to drive, with
exceptional viewing ability. I am
disabled, but even I, have been able
to remove the seats to use ti for cargo.
I also want to mention, how easy it is
to keep up with the opperations of the
engine and oil, fule, water, trip
milage, etc.,Since it has gauges and
NO IDIOT LIGHTS !!!
Very comfortable, and easy to convert
for cargo use.
Much more accessable for engine
repairs.Easier to modify for electric
