Cons: "winter driving, stigmata of driving a "creapy van""
Likely to recommend this car? (1-10): 10
"I grew up with my G20. My parents got it in 1990 as a family vacation vehicle. It was used as a daily driver until we got another new car in 2005. The G20 sat in the driver way for about 7 years until I needed to use it to move my stuff into my new house in 2012. The Ol girl fired right up and made the many trips to and from my house about 40 miles away. It worked so well that I decided to keep using it as a daily driver. I towed jet skis with it, hauled landscaping rock (well over 3000 pounds at a time inside since I removed the rear seat), and hauled 10 foot sheets of dryway and firewood inside. It was a great drive in movie vehicle and very reliable even in our -20 degree winters we had the last 2 years. I didn't have to put any money at all into maintenance in the last 5 years. It wasn't until last week when a lady pulled out in front of me and I tboned her at 40 mph that the ol girl might finally die. I did drive away from the sceen unhurt but the front end is smashed beyond repair. RIP G20, Id love to have another van just like this but they are hard to find. Only gripe is replacing the air filter is a pain, as it is in any van (you have to remove the center cowling in between the driver and passenger seats. 217000 very hard driven miles. My friends with full size trucks asked to use my van to move/haul things alot."
"i bought my 94 g20 years ago with only 98,000 miles on it and since then i used it to work in, haul heavy loads and whatever else came up. i had to replace the egr valve and the fuel pump and fuel filer, but besides that just the regular maitence (change oil n stuff). the ol' girl now has over 200000 miles and is still very reliable, i have a custom van and i turned the back of it into a little sleeper and i still use it for cross country trips and camping; and i trust it to get A to B. love it"
