Review
So the engine, transmission and drive-line are still good to go after 145k but what about everything else? To replace the sparkplugs, the engine has to be dropped which is very expensive. We've had a sliding door fail on us and it cost over $2k to repair. The other door is now starting to make a very similar sound. The tires they recommend are from the Camry since the van frame is based off it but the vehicle weighs a lot more so you eat through them very quickly. The rear springs are undersized and loose their life very quickly. Still haven't found a beefed-up/stronger solution yet so the butt is dragging. The automatic doors take a lot of power so batteries are short lived.
Favorite Features
All of the recall notices telling us to take our van in for repair...
Suggested Improvements
You got the engine and transmission down pat, now work on the rest.

You are right about the tires. If I get 45,000 miles out of a set of Michelin's I am doing well. This van eats tires for lunch. I have one automatic door and both batteries lasted over four years. We do replace the rear shocks fairly frequently.
