A bullet proof tank that goes forever
Overall this vehicle has taken a lot, but still keeps ticking. In over 100K miles the vehicle has had the following issues:
Worn out idler arms never replaced
2 brake jobs.
2 Complete tune ups.
Brake lines rusted out.
Replaced 1 set of tires.
Exhaust system keeps falling apart.
Fan control resistor rusted out.
3-4 clutch burned out at 101,000 miles.
Strange electrical problem with the windshield wipers (turn on by themselves as times)
Side door fell off (hinge broke)
Interior light switch drained battery down.
Shocks shot and never replaced.
Back door latch broke a couple times and could not get the door open. Fixed for now.
10 oil changes (if lucky)
This van is like driving a tank. If you need to haul something it can do it, if you need it to race against mustangs at 130 Mph it will do it (not happy) This van has been offroad, hill climbing, and any where else in between and still squeals the tires every time. I have to admit for a vehicle that does not get much service attention it does not slow it down at all. I think this is the best mini-van they ever built.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
