- There have been a ton of recalls, I haven't had ANY of them done.
- The Van ran fine with intermediate oil changes all the way till 180,000 km. Then I had the crankshaft position sensor replaced, and here I am, 191,800 km!
- as of now it's really hard on gas, about 120 km per full tank, in city. (premium)
This van is nice to drive in the city and on the highway. It's my daily driver, I think once any of these vans go past 150,000 km, the whole Vehicle becomes high maintenance. I myself, drive the thing pretty hard, but most of the repairs I had done are pretty much regular maintenance (shocks, tires,belt, oils). As for performance, this one is a highway runner. It' pulls the hardest at 100 km/h and up. it can get to 180km/h with passengers easily.
I'd say this is a good purchase. Today you can buy one cheap. It has lots of room, parts are cheap, and it's easy to drive. I am about to do it's first major tune up at 191,800 km, so far nothing has broke, but the power steering pump. But that was my fault, let's just say I was showing off.. My advice, get the extended version, (grand caravan) It's a smoother ride. And one of the two V6's.
