So long, fair well old friend. My tried and true '08 Grand Caravan was beginning to show signs of disrepair eventhough I kept it meticulously maintained. I couldn't justify constantly throwing money at a 12 year old vehicle with 122,000 miles (which is low really). So Saturday I traded it in on an SUV. I found a mint 2012 Hyundai Santa Fe GLS with only 17,800 miles on the clock. The original owner opted for AWD and the 3.5L V6 and some other options not generally found on the GLS trim level.

You know what's ironic? I don't mind throwing money at my G20! lol!

Cool.
That's some really low miles.
Hope it serves you well.

Thanks! So far I love it. I'm planning on swapping all the fluids (oil, transfer case, rear diff) over to synthetic.

Hey Nate,
Grand Caravans are nice.
Pity.. what did you have trouble with ? But yeah a car with problems on a regular basis
just bothers and you just don't feel like using and taking care of it (except if it's a venerable vehicle).
I got a 05 Chrysler Voyager that I like a lot.
Enjoy your new Santa Fe!

F.

I so lucked out with our 2007 Civic coupe. Went 336K + miles before block cracked back in January , Just couldn't do new : JDM motor swap; back on the road with I believe close to 340K.
We currently also have a 2014 Civic ; a 2013 Crew Cab Silverado and my baby : 1974 G10 !

I need to win the Lotto and buy some land and a air craft hanger and give Rusty a run for his $$$$$$.
