Welcome from sunny Qld. I hope you enjoy your new toy. This forum should guide you through any teething problems as stated above, but in the main they are pretty good. They have many features that the modern vehicles are still catching up with.

Mine's been good, although I had to recondition the auto transmission last year at around 140000k's. The converter fused itself to the clutch plate so I lost reverse. A rare problem apparently. Other than that it has been a good van. I put a set of alloys on it to try & make it look a bit cooler. I think anything is better than hubcaps. BAN THE HUBCAP!!!!

Also I disconnected the "lights on, door open, please don't leave me" beeper which was doing my head in, especially if you want to play a CD with the door open. Now I just have to find the "sunroof open" beeper & I will be a happy man. Oh also that annoying "you have selected reverse & are going backwards" beeper. You would think the car was made in America with all the bells & beepers!

Fair enough. If it was a reverse parking sensor I wouldn't mind. I find the rear mirror on the liftgate handy especially when backing up to a car or trailer.
