Otherwise runs well and returns fair gas mileage. Don't even get me started on the seat staining problems.....

Thanks

Default Let me get back to you but

I think all the time. I'll double check tomorrow. As an owner of the same type of van wondering if you have any of these issues:

1. Seat staining.....not much I can do about this.
2. Broken glove compartment.
3. Coffee cup holder has broke and fallen out of holder. Very expensive to fix.
4. Fuel cap cover broken.
5. Transmission problems...will later make separate post about this. May be PCS valve.
6. Rear hatch pull-down broke but replaced cheaply on eBay.
7. Can't reset time on clock, have to disconnect battery to set clock.
8. Rear tailgate overhead light lens fell out and broke.
9. Can't open rear power windows (need to check fuses).
10. Strange intermittent starting problems. Drove 3hrs to campsite and had cooler plugged into 9v? connector. Pulled over at a gas station after 1.5 hrs highway drive and van would not start. Battery tests normal.

Thanks for any comments.

Nope, none of those. I have intermittent ABS problems, the volume on the radio has a dead spot. One click it shuts off the sound. Every now and then it wont start, try it again and it starts right up.
