Flawless reliability, decent gas mileage, smiles and thumbs up everywhere I go. All of my friends want one now, too! The woods of the Pacific Northwest are my oyster.
The only caveat I would warn would-be Delica owners of, that I don't think comes up enough, is the power, or lack thereof. These vans are dogs. If you're trying to get anywhere in a hurry, forget about it. That said, I've embraced the right-lane lifestyle and enjoy just getting there when I get there. I mostly take it on trips, so the lack of pep doesn't bother me much.
If you ever want to check out a van in person, let me know! I wish I had seen one before I ordered one from Japan, even if it only would have made me want one more.
I'm on a cross country(US) trip and I've learned to use my blinkers on steep inclines and wave at folks when they drive by. Most wave back and even slow down to check out the van :)
Feel free to add yourself to the map for US delica owners. I believe you have a neighbor there based on the map.
