Okay van, only problem is it is a GM


Replaced intake valve gasket @ 80K miles.

General Comments:

Just spent $700 on intake valve gasket. Crazy for year and mileage. Received info on class action suit. GM offering $100. Unbelievable. Although van is very roomy, comfortable to drive, and overall fits the family needs, will never buy GM again. I feel they don't stand behind their product.

Has passanger side automatic sliding door. Safety feature stinks on it. You have to really apply force to get it to stop. If you have a small child, would recommend turning the automatic open and close off.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? No
