Good Afternoon (Morning, Evening, etc.),

Thank you for having me in your forum.

In my younger days, I scoffed at the Soccer Mom vans. Then, in 2010 after our second daughter arrived, I bought a 2002 Dodge Caravan. From that moment I was a convert. It was comfortable, rode well, and was much better on gas than my previous Land Yachts.

Over the next 12 years, I grew to desire what I believed to be the best-looking minivan I had ever seen; the Honda Odyssey. But, they were always cost-prohibitive.

A couple of weeks ago, our Ford Freestar (I will NEVER have another Ford, but that is a different story) gave up the ghost. Thus I began my search, in earnest, for a Japanese replacement. This weekend my wife and I drove down to Hallandale to look at a 2001 that I found on Craigslist.

It is purported to be an original owner vehicle with 156K on the odometer.

To be honest, I am having some buyer's remorse because it is such an old vehicle. But, it did seem like a really good price and appears to be well-kept. Anyway, I'm not too mechanically inclined but I can do basic maintenance and change some bits as needed.

I hope to learn more about the van so I joined this forum as soon as I found it.

Thank you for taking the time to read and I look forward to my time here.
