"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."

"My father's van. He was a perfectionist, keeping everything up according to the MFR. Especially the oil, vehicle's life blood."

"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""

very comfortable ride

"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."

"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."

"Purchased used 7 years ago with 42,000 miles on the clock. Now has 165,000 miles. Only two not normal service problems. At 105,000 miles had a head gasket leak. Fortunately this coincided with the timing belt replacement. At approx. 140,000 miles a cooling hose situated under an exhaust manifold began leaking-$650--ouch! This has been a solid road vehicle and a roomy hauler. Do not expect sports car handling or exciting to drive. Do the recommended service and it will last."
