Brake lines, alternator.
I have owned a Safari for years. I bought a 1988 and had it for 10 years. My brother had a Windstar at the same time, and boasted about the 5 star safety rating it had, and the Windstar died after 3 years.
I just bought a Chev Astro a few days ago, a 1998 with 119,000 klm, and it runs like new. Yes they are there to be worked on, but they are the Chevette of this era, they will go forever.
But you would have to be a fool to tow a 27 foot trailer with it. A 4.3 6 cylinder is not meant to tow something that big. If you continue, your van will not last long. I would not tow that too far with my 95 Tahoe with a 350. Maybe that's why my GMs last so long.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
