A 300,000 mile car should be the norm and this is it!
Major maintenance: oil pan gasket, power steering gaskets, new radiator and sporadic throttle body cleaning.
Minor annoyances: front stabilizer bars bang through the rubber cushions when going over bumps (replace rubber every 100K miles), oil changes every 3K miles and kids always have the car (have to drive BMW :-0)
I am a car nut! I have owned a Porsche 911, BMW 325i and Lexus LS400, but this soccer van is easily the best car I've ever owned.
The engineering in this vehicle is very impressive. From engine to transmission to body to interior - everything is built for durability.
I can't believe the engine, it just goes on for ever. We took it across country when it had 180,000 miles on the odo. The car cruised at 80 MPH for most of the trip and never complained.
Like other posts, my children (now 19 and 22) want the van. My son, now graduated from college likes the car because it easily holds mountain and BMX bikes.
IMO, I own the reason GM and Chrysler are bankrupt. The early Honda Odyssey is the benchmark.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
