Introduction

Postby rubenova [OP] » March 16th 2014, 2:31pm

Been a member for a while, thought I'd introduce my van. I bought it for my wife 10 years ago for the AWD. Every few years we have a "winter" and I wanted a safe, go-anywhere, comfortable rig. So far nothing has stopped it! We have had 8 people in it for day trips to Seattle and vacationed as far away as the Oregon coast. Once out on the interstate it will get 20+mpg. I can't believe they stopped making them, we love ours!

I love love my awd. I've had plenty of 4x4 s-10 trucks that have fit my needs just fine. But 3 yrs ago I got a 94 2wd and loved it. I then got my current awd and I'm blown away at the way this thing goes in the snow (especially this year). I wish they still made them to, but I know I couldn't afford one anyway, they'd be priced in the $40000 range. Good looking van.
