Bought my 2001 late 2004 as the second owner, it had 40,000 miles on it. At 90,000 decided that doing preventative repairs would be cheaper than a new used car whose history I didn't know. Changed the shocks, struts/springs, rack & pinion steering, timing belt, tune up, radiator and transmission flush, brakes and a number of other things that escape memory. It now has around 103,000 miles and it is my primary transport. I am a single man and removed the bench seats and have used it for camping trips and hauling furniture. I also renovated my house and used this van to haul everything from Lowe's or Home Depot including sacks of cement. I have a love/hate relationship with this vehicle.
bought car with 10,000 mi at 20.000 passenger power window stopped working. this van has had new stabalizer bars at 100,000 mi battery,alternator at 200.000 mi and now the transmission is shot. took my family safely around country 4 times pulling a u-haul trailer. i hate this van because i needed it just a little longer. born jan 2001 died jan 2010 cause of death transmission failure and many nagging ailments. 210,983mi.
Owned the car for three years, 40000 miles. Problems so far have included the sliding door, replacing two batteries, one alternator and the stereo/radio, one cracked wheel, problems with power windows and replacing the condenser. The AC still isn't working and unfortunately it's no longer under warranty. We're done. I wouldn't buy this car without an extended warranty!
I bought it with 45,000 on it and already have had a speed sensor go bad, alternator die, sterring linkage continous poping, and A/C compressor also go bad. I cannot rely on this van. I feel as if something else will go wrong. What is next?
