I need a van for my band. Will this thing leave me on the side of the road? How easy is it

anything can leave you on the side of the road. the older the vehicle the easier they are to repair and cheeper you can get a small box truck with higher miles that has been kept in good shape they are built to haul and go for miles some have 4 or 6 cyl good on gas


What about the availability of parts when the inevitable happens?


Before you buy anything call a parts store and see what have in stock, ask for a water pump,belts,etc. or something . That may help
