A reliable workhorse that is easy to own
Lower radiator hose tube (metal) under intake manifold rusted out - 160,000.
PCV Valve keeps fouling/burning oil at idle - 170,000.
This van has been terrific! The 3.0 V-6 is absolutely indestructible. Even though it has overheated so many times from the coolant tube breaking and the resulting troubleshooting, it has held together - never popped a gasket!
The transmission has also held together nicely - even after repeated rapid-acceleration getting out on the highway. (C:
The van hauls a full load with ease, I have moved many times with it.
On-highway acceleration is particularly responsive!
The rear-most folding bench seat is pretty heavy, although the middle bench seat is not so bad.
Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Yes
