Bought an 08 new, still have it with 317,000 miles on it. The engine and trans are bullet proof. 7 front wheel bearings 4 sets of front brakes 2 sets rear brakes, air con doesn't work, heat has always been erratic at best. Over heated 3 times constantly dumps the coolant for no reason that has been found, I have to check it constantly. Interior has slowly fallen apart and the seats crack. The first two years it spent a total of 60 days in the garage getting fixed. I want to see how long I can make it last.
I bought this car in 2008, with 5,000 miles. The front passenger door parts (plastic handle) fell off the same month. The first year all of the engine lights started acting up (intermittently flashing and not accurate)and this could never be fixed. The first year the rear wiper also stopped working. In 6 years (80,000 miles) I have replaced the tires 5 times, replaced both axles and struts,break pads, replaced the entire heating/ AC system. Most irritating is after endless mechanics no one can really figure out the shaking (bad steel wheels causing the axles to bend?), or the grinding that always comes back usually only a month after being "fixed". I was told to get aluminum wheels and that "might fix" the the shaking and grinding once and for all. I'm afraid this car won't last me until I can get a new one early October. My sister in law coincidentally bought the same van the same year. She sold her's after 3 years. She was lucky to get out in time. What a problem. What a money pit. What a piece of s__#@!! Best offer, anyone????
