Faults:

A/C never worked when I got it, but I didn't care for the price with the low miles. It just needs new lines and a dryer.

The ball joints started clicking when I turn right at 116950 or so, but it's a cheap fix.

Other than that... Nothing!

General Comments:

It floats! It's smooth! ROOMY! POWERFUL.

It's a V8 hauler van, so it gets 14 MPG to the gallon if you baby the throttle and use overdrive on the freeway. In town it's more like 9-10 MPG, but I knew what I was getting into when I bought it, and I'm sure if the spark plugs were replaced and the injectors were cleaned or replaced (even though it's not necessary yet), I could get a few more MPG out of it.

It's been good to me, and the guy who had it before me told me it was very good to him, so I believe it!

I bet this thing goes to 350,000 miles without replacing the trans or motor!

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
