Basic transportation --- Big box car

What can I say ... bought it in 2001 and it's still running strong at 158,000 miles with nothing more done than oil changes, brakes, and tires.
The only aggravating thing has been its door locks which were repaired twice under warranty and once since yet still have broken a fourth time. The locks still work but the full car won't lock up from the passenger side (latest problem since the previous breaks were all different).
As I say - basic transportation - but extraordinarily reliable basic transportation.

Nice tow vehicle for camper. We have had 4 of these now all going over 150,000 miles with TLC. One warning is that is on a truck body so the ride is a little rough.

As a mobile DJ, the vehicle appeared to fit my business needs perfectly because it had plenty of cargo/passenger room and fills the gap between a full size van and a minivan. It looked nice and drove fine, unfortunately, it's reliability was an issue. In 4 years and only 68,000 miles, I had to replace the rear heater, 2 power lock actuators, vacuum diaphram, rear door weatherstripping, entire carpet (leaked when it rained) MAP sensor, serpentine belt and transmission. This is exactly the type of vehicle that gives GM a bad name. No wonder they went bankrupt.

this is the 3rd one in our family. highest towing capacity of any mini van. loved the reliability. although, this is the first van that i had a lot of small issues with ac compressor/steering pump/idler/shocks that were taken care in the extended warranty. solid vehicle with lots of room to carry things and the roof rack is very useful.
