Have put about 40,000 miles since purchasing this vehicle. The engine was replaced 120,000 miles ago, but the chassis is very good. At 290,000 miles, just starting to get minor tranny leaks and just now replaced the tie rods (cheap if you do it yourself!). The gas mileage seems poor 18-20 per gallon and it really labors pulling my 12' pop up camper. I would not tow more than a boat with this even though it is supposed to be rated at 2400-3000 lbs. The tow package has no transmission cooler so you could burn out your tranny in a hurry. Good second vehicle for a big family. Fits 7 but is cramped on long trips. Looking to upgrade to a conversion van for space and better towing. Ditto on electic issue

Since I bought this car in 2001, I've
put a few bucks into it. Two water
pumps, a computer and prom, neutral
safety switch, one ball joint, one tie-
rod, and a fuel pump. The front brakes
and rotors I did myself so that saved
me a couple bucks. I was having trouble
with the passenger side window but I
found the broken wire. The A/C Heater
control has never lit up with lights on
but I know where everthing is even in
the dark. New plugs & wires were done
at 115,000 miles. The car now has
138,000 mi. on it. I guess my biggest
fear is that of the unknown....How long
will the tranny last.Right now it seems
fine but who knows?

Of all the cars we've had during the
course of a 48 year marriage, this is
our favorite. We will never trade it in.
The design is perfect, especially the
slanted front window and vertical back
window. Air currents when the car is in
motion keep the windshields free and
clear. It's a comfortable car to drive
or to ride in.

WATCH OUT. We are having to put the
3rd engine in this vehicle. On our way
home from our holidays, the bottom went
out again, just 16 months after putting
in another motor (not rebuilt). There
is a pattern here. It seems that the
motor "goes" at about 155,000
kilometers. DO NOT BUY!!

I have had this van for 8 years. The
A/C system workd great, I can always
keep it on the lowest setting and stay
comfortable. The heat has a vent right
at my feet, it's great for warming my
feet when the rest of me is not cold!
The steering wheels controls are
wonderful for the radio, I keep hitting
the button until I hear somehting I
like. I call it my rolling Living Room!
