That's $2050 of value, right there!

Only negatives (very minor, but worth mentioning for complete transparency):

  • Exterior: A very, very small dent on one side panel. It is almost invisible to the naked eye.
  • Interior: Original seats (gray leather/vinyl) are a bit tatty (hence seat covers)
  • Interior: Original roof fabric is a bit tatty (might replace)
  • Interior: One interior rear door panel is missing (easy to replace and easy to find cheaply on ebay)

So... with a very small bit of work, and a little bit of tender love and care, this van will be in great shape. Adding possibly 5k to the value. These vans (at this mileage and condition) regularly sell for 15-20k. They also hold their value well and it is easy to find many of these which are going strong at 150, 200, 250,000 miles. Case in point, I recently saw one advertised on a local craigslist, with 260k on the clock, going for 8,500. Enough said. These hold value, work forever and are much loved by all.

I have a very genuine reason for sale - my wife doesn't like driving it and she makes the real rules. She wants something smaller and something that looks a little cooler! Otherwise, we've been very happy with it. It's been great to us and great for the kids.

I am willing to deliver this anywhere (within reason) in the Continental USA for 1,000 extra. Mainly because no-one else seems to do that and I'm up for a road trip.

These vans sell fast. This is in great condition and the buyer will be very happy. Bid in confidence and without delay, this won't hang about!

So tell me matey, what are you waiting for?

Don't delay, stick your bid in now.

GM recalling over 40,000 Chevy, Pontiac and Saturn models over fuel pump woes

Mon, 01 Oct 2012 09:31:00 EST

The National Highway Traffic Safety Administration has issued a recall for a number of General Motors cars and crossovers bought or currently registered in the hot-climate states of Arkansas, Arizona, California, Nevada, Oklahoma and Texas. As many as 40,859 units consisting of the 2007 Chevrolet Equinox, Pontiac Torrent and Saturn Ion and the 2007-2009 Chevrolet Cobalt (shown) and its Pontiac G5 twin are being recalled for potential fuel leaks.
This recall is being issued due to potentially faulty fuel pump components that can crack and cause gasoline to leak from the return or supply ports and possibly cause a fire. NHTSA has not indicated how many fuel leaks or vehicle fires have been reported. As a fix, GM will replace the fuel pump modules on all affected vehicles free of charge. Since Pontiac and Saturn have been shuttered, owners will be able to go to another GM-brand dealership to have their vehicles repaired.
While the list of affected cars and crossovers varies by state and model year, if you own any of these models and live in Arizona, California, Florida, Nevada, Oklahoma or Texas, be sure to check the official notice below for more details.

GM profits threatened by glut of pickups

Wed, 05 Dec 2012 18:44:00 EST

Automotive News reports that General Motors may slash production or ramp up discounts in order to deal with an oversupply of pickup trucks. GM currently has more than double the standard supply of pickups, and the vehicles are threatening to dampen the automaker's profits for 2013. Typically, automakers try to sustain a 60- to 75-day supply of vehicles, but GM is currently loaded with a 139-day supply, as of last month. At the end of November, the automaker was sitting on 245,853 units.
The manufacturer says that it will adjust production accordingly before laying any incentives on the profitable pickups. Even so, there's some concern that the inventory swell could hurt the roll-out of the next-generation Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra. GM actually began slowly stepping back production in August, but it's clear the company will take further action as it heads toward the end of the year and into the next. Analysts predict the automaker could reduce pickup manufacturing by nearly half in the first quarter of 2013.
That still may not be enough to keep GM from laying extra cash on the Silverado and GMC Sierra. While the company's incentive spending was down in November compared to the same month in 2011, both the Ram 1500 and Ford F-150 saw double-digit percentage increases in sales last month while the Silverado and Sierra numbers slid compared to a year prior. Incentive spending could help move more trucks and add some balance to the GM inventory surge.

GM tinkering with Silverado, Sierra model mix amidst strong early sales

Mon, 04 Nov 2013 16:29:00 EST

Variety, as they say, is the spice of life. That's a lesson that is currently being taught to General Motors, because despite a strong showing from its 2014 Chevrolet Silverado and GMC Sierra, the General's pickup sales still can't best those of cross-town rival Ford.
With 59,163 trucks moved, GM fell just over 1,000 units short of toppling Ford, and one of the main reasons for that, according to GM's chief sales analyst, was due to a lack of variety in the engines and body styles available on dealer lots. "We are still over-weighted toward crew-cab V8 trucks. Our light-duty mix will moderate over time as our launch progresses," said Kurt McNeil.
Loading dealers with the popular combination of the 5.3-liter V8 and the four-door, Crew Cab body style was intentional during the truck's launch, but as supplies of leftover 2013 models, which are being sold at heavy incentives, are beginning to wane, both budget-conscious and high-dollar buyers are looking elsewhere instead of at the volume model pickups.
