Total loss claim????

I was in a pretty bad crash in my L300, one month ago. My van has been written off. What do you want to know?

Double sliding doors

Hello. Does anyone have any experience with double sliding doors? It's my understanding that it affects the middle row of seats. The seats can move around if you have one sliding door, but with double sliders the middle seats have to stay where they are. My concern with this is, down the road when I...

Middle row, jump seat removal

Nice. Good to know. Does the bench lay down flat? Thinking I might be sleeping back there from time to time.

Middle row, jump seat removal

Good day, folks. I'm wondering if anyone has had any luck removing the little jump seat that folds down in the middle row. I'm looking at an L400 that i really like but I don't like the middle row set up. I'm going from an L300 with captains chairs to this new set up. If this works out I think I wou...

L300 written off

Good day folks. My van is gone. Had a single vehicle accident last week and the van is written off. I'm pretty banged up but really lucky to be ok in the long run. It was a 92 L300, had 375,000 KM on it and ran like a champ. (a really slow champ). I had the van for over 10 years. I'm thinking about ...

Headlight light bulbs

Honestly, I don't know if they are 55 or not. They are from Canadian tire, Certified brand H3 bulbs. They don't mention anything regarding watts. I'll have to check the wiring as well. I know that there are a few too many things connected to my battery. Not sure what they do. Wonder if that might ha...

Headlight light bulbs

Do you folks also find yourselves changing light bulbs in your headlights every four to five months? I keep a stash of H3's in my cold box. Am I the only one?

ICBC express locations

Has anyone had any good experiences with any of the ICBC express locations? I have been given the go ahead to have my van repaired. But I'm not quite sure who to take my van to. It has to be an ICBC approved shop, so that excludes some of our regular garages.

Thanks.

How do you keep the revs in the correct range going up hill in automatic?

That's what I do. Take it off overdrive and the let your rpm's dictate your speed.
Slow and steady.

Our bumper in bent 90 degrees down and our hatch won't open. Other than that we're fine. So, what kind of shit storm can I expect ...

Air conditioning.

Does anyone use it? In the 6/7 years I have had my van I have never charged the a/c unit. It seems like too large a volume of air to be cooled by such a little system. Does it work well? Is it worth having?

Re: Camping with kids

I'm in the same boat, jester. Looking for good close-ish place to camp with my 6 year old daughter. I'm going to try Jones lake next month. I've heard good things about it. Have you been? Anyone else have something to say about Jones?

Re: 4D56T Mileage

I'm at 310 000. No major issues yet. I'm getting a bit of squeal, maybe from a bearing in a belt pullie. But that's about it (engine related anyway).
