"I have had this van for 11 years. It is absolutly reliable, very comfortable, and with the rear seat that folds out into a bed, very sexy, too! I've been camping in this van, driven all over Florida, and even used it to shlep kids everywhere. The only 2 drawbacks I know about are: 1) it drives like a truck, meaning it's wide & long, and handles like a truck steering-wise; 2) Gas milage leaves much to be desired. I didn't drive it much back when gas spiked up over $4/ gallon.
If you need a large vehicle, for work or family, this gem is worthy of consideration. Mine has never needed any major mechanical work, and the paint issues are to be expected given the age of the van."
