Wow can't believe the van is at 180,000 Kms now.Only 20,000 kms to go until the big 200,000 kms. Seems just like yesterday I bought the van. Is their any thing that I should be on a look out for at this point?

Also whats the current mileage on your 4th gen?

I'm still only at 38,700 ...... I have many roads to travel!
That's like new. Wish I could find a "new" 2002 DGC Sport, one made before the decontenting started.

My '06 T&C now has 79,000 miles on it....

Question.....if your listing Kms, why do you call it mileage? Shouldn't it be meterage?

mileage = distance, miles per gallon, travel rate, remaining life

meterage = a fee charged for measurement (think electrical power bills or water bills)

klick = U.S. military slang for a kilometer

kilometerage = metric form of mileage = too long a word, use klick instead :)

1. Water pump (warranty)
2. AC system (warranty)
3. Driver side sliding door lock actuator
4. Many seals: rear axle (AWD), transfer case output shaft, oil pan, both valve covers, lower intake, upper intake,
5. New cooling system metal piping to replace corroded pieces
6. Body panel rust repair in tailgate, hood, and rear three quarter panels (multiple times)
7. Alternator
8. Front strut assemblies
9. Sway bar bushings (three times)
10. Sway bar end links (two times).
11. Steering rack
12. Outer tie rods
13. Inner tie rods
14. Turn signal stalk

Next up on the list is the transmission solenoid pack.

To make it even more confusing, people in metric countries could use metric miles. Unfortunately, depending on context, that is either 1500 m (swimming) or 1600 m (running), except in Britain (you Brits really have to have things your own way, don't you?) where it is 1500 m in running as well. For automotive purposes, I would choose 1600 m, since that's closest to the statute mile. I have no idea what the abbreviation for a metric mile is, but I supposed "mmi" would work.

Or the British Empire and all its offspring (including the USA) could pull their heads out of their asses and go completely metric.

On a side note, because mpg and l/100km are reciprocal measures, distance per volume vs. volume per distance respectively, the conversion between the two is the same both ways, y = 235/x.
For example, 30.0 mpg = 235/30.0 = 7.83 l/100km, and 8.00 l/100km = 235/8.00 = 29.4 mpg to three digits precision (the same precision as the formula).

217,000,000,000 mm. I don't think technically I'm supposed to use the commas, but did just in case someone wants to check my math.
