1995 Pontiac Trans Sport SE 3.1 from North America
Good value, when maintained properly will last for years
Wiper motor at 99,000km.
Transmission at 99,000km.
Rear hatch lock at 99,000 - 101,000 - 124,000km.
Ball joints & upper control arms at 120,000km.
Rear air switch at 125,000km.
Replaced all shocks at 115,000km.
Due to the plastic body panels, the van squeaks.
Lots of wind noise when driving, poor weather striping on doors, hard to adjust.

Comment concerning the 115,000 km Shock replacement:
If I am correct, that would be about 71,500 miles - which is really really good wear for a set of shocks! (C:

I too would like to know why the transmission went out at 53K miles?

On an import yes, but none of my domestics has ever had the shocks replaced before 150,000 miles. One was driven over 300,000 with the original shocks, and two had right at a quarter of a million miles with the original shocks. Our current GM has 90,000 miles and has not even had a brake job yet, let alone shocks. Shocks should last way longer than 70,000 miles, unless all the driving is on very rough roads. I have virtually never had ANY repairs on my domestic vehicles in 100,000 miles.
