I am considering buying a van with 160K miles on it because it fits in my price range. It has had regular maintenance done on it ever 4k miles and seems to be in pretty good shape, that being said, the transmission has never been replaced and im scared itll crap out.I’m just wondering - what is this the real reason for this survey?
I dont understand? The goal was to get some data on users miles and repairs, then I thought I would asked some opinion-based questions. Nowhere did I say that #4 is a fact and majority rules.A questionnaire like this should be based on fact and not uneducated perception.
[URL=http://www.promasterforum.com/forum/usertag.php?do=list&action=hash&hash=4]#4 [/URL] ) How long do you think the van will last with regular maintenance?
Thanks for the thoughts. I just wanted the survey so that others could skim the results without having to read all the responses. Thats good to hear about the transmission, Im a bit worried that since the transmission hasnt been serviced in a while that its a bad sign. I think it hasnt been serviced at in about 100k miles.Without a survey I can tell you I have 107K miles on my 2014 and have had no major repairs. I did have a coil fail and that was a bit worrisome but it was at 97K miles and I was due for the 100K service any way. The transmission, although clunky and an old design, is actually fairly robust. I had the previous design (basically the 4 speed version) in our minivan and it lasted well over 360K with only the solenoid pack needing replaced at 250K. It probably would have lasted much longer except our daughter wrecked it.
12K is what they are asking. no backup cam/ screen on dash but it does have back windows and a side window (a plus for me). also its a 2500. Also, it has very good service records, I even talked to the previous driver who said it was serviced religiously every 4,000.What's the price range of a 160k van?
Thats awesome! Great to hear. Any chance either of you have had any issues with the compressor? apparently the one in the van is most likely shot and im worried itll be a costly repair. besides that, the dealer said they would replace the brake pads and swap the wheels for me.Pads (f or r) about $35 pr. Rotors about $50 each as I recall. Cheap and very easy to replace. I did my fronts at about 65k miles I think and I’m still using the original rears at 88 k miles no problems.
