    I own a '98 which has some additional bells and whistles. All the first gen vans are pretty great IMO.
    Starting to assemble a 5 speed swap plus build a n/a F23. 200k miles now and shooting for 400k.

    There is a TSB iirc, but not a widespread issue. Buy the cleanest, best maintained one you can find and enjoy it.

    I personally like the 95 but 98's have some upgrades from the 95-97. Just get one that was pretty well maintained. Theres a 99 Oasis by me-I could ship it

    The '95s are great because they are still OBD1. That comes in handy with higher mileage when people might have cat converter or O2 sensor issues. 1. You only have one O2 sensor to deal with. 2. Cat converter problems will not show up as a check engine light/code. 3. If you want to replace the converter you can use any generic brand that fits and not have issues. I have only personally experienced and read much about the OBD2 Hondas only liking Honda brand cat converters.
