Problem van

It's been a journey, first week battery died out. Trouble with seat bealts. Trouble with seat head piece. Key trouble. Dash lights turn on warning without cause.


Solid, economical, reliable transportation

Bought new in October 2017. 85,000+ miles. Needs new set of tires (previous set went 40,000+ miles) and a new battery (original battery dying after 69 months). Otherwise just (full synthetic) oil changes and routine maintenance. 2.4L 4-cyl. engine/4-sp. automatic trans. runs strong. 21 MPG in town, 30 MPG on the highway. Good winter traction with the right tires. Nothing inside or outside has fallen off that wasn't helped off by road debris. I wanted basic transportation without all the bling - this vehicle has more than filled the bill.


Transmission shot after 55,000 miles

Had this vehicle for almost two years with no problems. Then on the way home from the airport and about 3 hours from home, the transmission stopped working. Barely made it to a car shop and at 55,000 the transmission is shot and a bill of $6000 to repair. The mechanic was even shocked at the transmission going bad with only 55,000 miles on it. No warning signs at all.
