Hello and good day:

Sorry for the Slow Response, But the First Priority is to help folks with their car repair issues.

As for opinions on common issues on vehicles being bought or sold takes a back seat to other issues.

My opinion is you maybe getting a lemon...you never know what your going to get even with a "Car Fax". You are well advised to take the Vehicle to the Mechanic to have it checked out.

My Neighbor has the same type of Van With over 154,000 miles on it and it is still going strong...but he has taken care of his with all the basics...Oil change...tune up's...brakes...etc.

So again sorry for the delay...and Welcome to the Forum.


Good Luck and good repairing Sterling_6
