I have had a few expensive repairs beyond maintenance, maybe around $1500, but after 7 years and over 100,000 miles, to be expected. I love this van. Went from transporting youngsters and friends to loading in big Christmas trees, picking up loads of IKEA materials, loading screen doors, dry wall, moving kids to college and first apts., etc. Drives like a wonderful car. Very comfortable. Great stereo system. Good AC/defrost/heater, etc. If only it got a little better gas mileage. But it is a van, after all.
