Hopefully a Delica owner by next week

Hello all!
I am currently looking to buy a Delica, but before I do I have a few questions to ask.

#1) How easy is it to get parts for a 2000 + year model here in Ontario?

#2) What is the fuel mileage like on a gasoline 3000CC model?


#3) Is there any common problems that I would need to be aware of?

All of your inputs will be my deciding factor to purchase one or not.


Cheers!

Marty

Parts aren't hard to find IF you don't mind buying online. Sniff around on partsouq , amayama , and fitinpart (I buy oil and fuel filters there). Before I bought my Townace, I used a Townace Vin number from the Internet to check for parts availability. Another factor I would consider is how mechanically inclined are you? A deli is a rare vehicle and pushing 20 years old, it's going to need stuff. You will need to be willing and able or willing and able to learn.

Fuel economy on the 3l V6 isn't great, 16-20mpg (about 13l/100km). It's a very heavy van with the aerodynamics of a brick.
Nothing says "poor workmanship" more than wrinkles in the duct tape.
