We Have Had Great Times Together
My van had been a fleet vehicle and I got it at a bargain price with 26,000 miles on it. It now has 124,000 memorable miles. It became part of the family, rarely letting us down as we hauled purchases in it, hauled my small kayak inside of it, took kids and their stuff to and from college, moved one of them out of an apartment in it when a rental truck wasn't available, and shuttled scouts to camp, and the van is still reliable. Systems needed replacement much later than I expected. In my eyes, its only negative is in turning. It can do a u-turn in tight space, but I am still not comfortable parking because the pivot point escapes me. I will keep this until it quits, or at least until it no longer smells like stale pretzels and dirty socks.
