Thanks Everyone for the replies. My schedule has been all over the place due to school, work, and family issues, so I sorry I couldn’t get back sooner. After driving it for the past month, back and forth to various places, it’s really nice. Very simple to drive, actually quite maneuverable, and they’re have been cases where I’m the transport for the next road trip because it’s the best combination of space and comfort.

Gas mileage is weak, 13 mpg is my average, but I’ve had no oil consumption and just driving it has helped some of the small problems. I’m going to work on the power mirrors this weekend and also put in the 3rd row.

Dibs on the radio if it's the original factory installation. Matter of fact, I've got a Pioneer stereo w/CD player I pulled out of my '91 Suburban. Going back original. I'll swap you even!
