So far i find that there are a lot of things wrong then good with this van. I think more from age then anything else. I have just had to have the computer to the thing revamped and found ground wires were needing to be replaced in order to keep it running after a diagnostic finally took it was clean. But there is also a transmission bolt needing replacement and the gearing is out of whack, on the steering column. Also, Just changed the starter at about 135K. It drives smooth and is very comfortable but find it may nickel and dime us before too much longer unfortunately. Gonna keep her till she dies though.

This has been a good van. Bought it
with 72000 miles on it in 2001.
Here's what we've had done:
New brakes 90k
ABS light stays on/not fixed 85k
Wiper Motor 85k
Window Motor 110k
Coolant Level Sensor 113k
Found out the head gasket is bad in
it, so we're trying to sell it off
now. It currently has 114000 miles on

Only problems were the Power Windows,
had the drivers side done under
warranty, but passenger side power
motor/regulator went AFTER warranty.
Added my own subwoofer (not a big one,
just a little job that sits between
two front seats, sounds MUCH BETTER.
