I love the van, loved every mile!
At 90,000 miles, the steering rack needed replacing.
At nearly 120,000 miles, the water pump seized-up.
I had this van for nearly 15 years, and had 4 major body jobs performed. 2 due to rust through, 1 due to a front-end collision, and 1 because the van was stolen, pursued by the police, and ditched. This vehicle had quite a history!
At around 300,000 miles, I needed a new fuel tank. Actually, the replacement was rust-free from the southern U.S., and worked very nicely.
All things considered, this van really held up well. The fact that I happened to get it pre-owned with rear-wheel drive, 5-speed and a base cargo model was an absolute bonus. I'd like to see Toyota re-issue the van. I'm sure that there would be a market for it.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
