I've had this van for 11 years and it
is still jammin right
along. Rust proofing is the key in
Hawaii but there has been no major
mechanical problem.It turns on a dime.
Great viewing from all seats. I kept
it so long because I love the wave
shaped (or W shaped some call it
dashboard. I wish all mimni SUV's ( my
next car now that my kids are grown)
had it. It's marvelous, feels
spacious, the glove compartment could
be a mini ice chest! And when i'm the
passenger I rest my feet up on
it, it's so perfect. Hard to clean
inside of windshield, it's quite a
reach but worth it. And to keep it
defrosted in the rain here I had to
put the air conditioner on it.
Shape,size, easy fold up seats,
turning radius, and of course the
I tried to submit mileage,
have to spell it out in letters?
fFOURTEEN THOUSAND AND FIVE HUNDRED A
YEAR. It now has 164,000 miles!
I've had the car for 6 years as the main
family car. I don't want a new one since
my 3 kids are making a mess out of
everything and that way I don't even
care if it gets dinged.
It performs so well I don't feel the
need to buy a new van (even though this
one is 10-year old).
The brakes are a chronic problem, I have
to put in $500/year to fix them.
Had to replace the starter twice.
Otherwise no problems.
