Get ready to spend lots of money
Due to having a company vehicle as well, I haven't driven this van much. But it has certainly cost me a lot.
I recently encountered a problem with loss of power and hesitation when at highway speeds going up hill. The check engine light flashes and the van loses power. I've been to 6 mechanics, including the dealership, and have spent $1000 so far with no result at all. The problem is getting worse. Have done a complete tune up, fuel injector assembly replacement, O2 sensors, MAP sensor, mass air flow meter, distributor, cap and rotor, and so on. I have deep doubts as to the reliability and legitimacy of an engine that can't be diagnosed by the dealership.
I'd like to believe that the U.S can make a good truck, but this is the second one I've owned and both were terrible vehicles. I've had numerous Japanese cars, and none gave me the problems that Chevy or Ford have. I wish Toyota sold a van in the U.S.
If Toyota could make an engine and put it in an Astro body, I think we'd have a decent truck.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
