Since I bought this car in 2001, I've
put a few bucks into it. Two water
pumps, a computer and prom, neutral
safety switch, one ball joint, one tie-
rod, and a fuel pump. The front brakes
and rotors I did myself so that saved
me a couple bucks. I was having trouble
with the passenger side window but I
found the broken wire. The A/C Heater
control has never lit up with lights on
but I know where everthing is even in
the dark. New plugs & wires were done
at 115,000 miles. The car now has
138,000 mi. on it. I guess my biggest
fear is that of the unknown....How long
will the tranny last.Right now it seems
fine but who knows?
I have had this van for 8 years. The
A/C system workd great, I can always
keep it on the lowest setting and stay
comfortable. The heat has a vent right
at my feet, it's great for warming my
feet when the rest of me is not cold!
The steering wheels controls are
wonderful for the radio, I keep hitting
the button until I hear somehting I
like. I call it my rolling Living Room!
Purchased used with 24,000 miles. Has been excellent, practical transportation, very reliable, comfortable, quiet and economical. Had just one computer chip (starting circuit) problem. Especially fun to drive on a trip, ride is well-controlled and quiet. The interior space is fantastic - I've hauled a freezer in it! Best bet for value.
My experiences range from good and bad.
It makes me hate this van one day and
love it the next. The engine itself has
run extremely well and been great on
gas. The fit and finish of the interior
is full of squeaks and rattles. The
electical system has been a terrible
delimma, and front end suspension
parts - I go through them like popcorn.
BUT its comfy, spacious, drives well
and still looks great on the outside as
the day I bought it. Good stereo sound,
plenty of glass to see (feels like a
space ship) and makes long trips
pleasurable. Have a dog and 2 kids. How
could I go back to a car, or the gas
guzzling SUV I once had.
