So after a discussion that gets brought up constantly about the reliability of these 4th gens, I thought it'd be a good idea to have everyone share their reliability experience with their 4th gens and the cost associated with it along with your current mileage
If you own a 5th gen and once owned a 4th gen, please chime in and tell us how reliable your 4th gen was as well.
I'll give you the rundown of my van which is currently sitting at approximately 204,000 kms.
We bought the van in 2008 with 78,215 kms and paid $14,700 CDN for the van
Here is the rundown:
$1500 for 2 sets of tires (including repairs for leaks (like 5 receipts for tire leaks lol) etc...)
$800 for 2 radiators which includes a tranny drop and fill
$50 for 5 quarts of tranny fluid
$1500 for CTC robbing my mom
$300 for blower motor and resistor
Batteries, Oil, Coolant, and other stuff- $660.
Water pump and Inlet tube- $300
So about $6000 including everything to date for 6 years. Would have been less if it wasn't for CTC and their useless repairs and outrageous labor charges. It seems so high because we were robbed all these years and paid high labor charges. Go figure. Now I found a good mechanic, so I'm saving a boat load of $$$.
In all, my van has been really reliable and i'm confident I can easily get another 200,000 problem free KMS out of her.
