"have had van for 13 yrs, still drive daily. on third tranny, but much original equipment. rusting out last two years, but got 20mpg on highway last fall. paint job was always sketchy. fairly easy to work on, bought cheap with 160K on it in 1998, average maybe $400-$500 per year to keep inspected. WELL worth the money i've spent on van, have hauled some heavy loads, lots of miles."
