We are a French couple, we traveled for 1 year in this van across North America, it is a faithful companion.

The minor flaws that didn’t bother us:
– 2 small impacts on the windshield smaller than a 25ct coin. They didn’t grow during our year.
– clear water flows a little when the tank is full
– gray water runs a little bit before it gets to the tank (easily fixable, just a leaking hose connection outside the van)
– the passenger door does not open with the key but only from the inside. The other 3 ports work.
– We lowered the price (19800$ to 18000$) because the Check engine sometimes appears but we passed the Smog Check despite this light. The mechanics did not find any faults and assume that it is a simple electrical problem.

We loved this van, it’s heartbreaking to part with it but it’s too complicated to bring it back to France. We have taken really good care of him, it is in great condition and we are looking for someone who will take good care of him.

The mechanic we saw for the SMOG told us that the engine was in great condition and that the van still had many good years ahead of it, especially since it has not a lot of miles.

Payment in one time via the WISE application (in order to send us the money to our French account). Transfer costs at our expense.
Very safe application that the CHASE bank advised us on our arrival. We bought the van thanks to WISE, it’s very simple.
