"This vehicle is a bit bouncy, even with replaced shocks, it reminds of being on a boat. It has loud road noise, and is underpowered with a 3.3l engine. The van started to leak oil about 115,000. The heat and a/c work fine, and vinyl seats have held to the kids abuse. Fitting 7 people is snug, and being tall, the drivers seat doesn't have enough room. That being said, no other major repairs and the van never left us stranded."
Cons: "Lots of improvements in cars the last 12 years."

"Picked it up a few years ago and has been a nice car. Plenty of room for 4 adults and luggage as long as the 3rd seat is removed. We keep the seat in and the rear space is plenty for groceries, grand-kids baseball gear, blankets...the usual stuff we all have in the "trunk""
Pros: "great for travel although i don't travel much."
Cons: "need thermostat in radiator so easy to change."

"I love this van, the only thing I wish it had is heated seats and a remote start. it has been very dependable. I bought it used over a year ago. and if they had a way to use my same seats(they are so comfortable) and make them heated I would pay for it. at least the drivers side. I love the fact I can haul almost anything in it as well. seats lie down easy. they need to make an exact duplicate of it except newer with some of the more modern options in it. although I have most of them now. it would be a first time new car buy for me if they did."
Pros: "dependable, easy to work on, basic, good leather"
Cons: "Minor items only."

"Bought new from dealer. Have done recommended services, etc. Replaced both CV axles and one rear wheel bearing. Timing belt, trans fluid, motor mounts etc. This van still looks great and runs/drives great with 210,000 miles on it. Just put a new set of Coopers on it. No signs of letting us down. Struts are a little tired. Met a guy who built these vans recently. He said they are one of a kind. He said the engine block is actually a GM design. Unlike things now, this van was built all in the U.S. Even the designer was a Nissan guy in the U.S. At least that's what he told me! It was obviously painted in the U.S., but the white has held up well. Two kids and working wife commuting 20 miles everyday for the last 11 years with no issues...I'd buy another one. Great vehicle."
