All of the windows are in excellent working order, along with the slider door. The van's paint is stunning, but there are some signs of wear and tear from the last 3 years (when we painted the van & did the interior renovations).
The audio system has been upgraded to include a Bluetooth stereo and we installed surround sound speakers.
We have driven this van from the tip of the Baja peninsula to Portland OR and back (a few times!!).
