My mom mini-van was dying a slow painful death. We got it used from my BIL & SIL a few years ago. It had over 100,000 miles on it but was in good shape and had been maintained well.
It got kind of sad after JD started driving and accidentally got a side mirror ripped off. We kept having to dump more & more money into it and knew it was on our last legs. The air conditioning is also dead, a big dent in the side, and it gets about 10 miles to the gallon. Since Chris is the only one working we really didn't have the money to get a "new" or new to us van.
God stepped in and made my dad decide it was time for him to get a new vehicle. He was generous to sell us his used mini van for a fantastic price. It's a 2008 with only 56,000 miles on it!
There's not one stain, one spot, one scratched part on this van!
If I have to drive a mom-van, I'm glad to have a really nice one again.
It's got all the bell's & whistles and has been impeccably maintained. I couldn't be happier with a brand new vehicle. This has the drivers side sliding door, rear heat & radio controls, working air & no parts ripped off accidentally by teenage boys. (Of course I share this with JD & Jack starts drivers training on Monday [EEEK].)
Now if I could just get brave enough to driver it over 35 miles an hour out of fear that I might mess it up it would be great!
