What should i pay for a 2003 Buick LeSabre? Read Answers

Greetings, I have a 2003 Pontiac Montana minivan which in the past hasn't given me too many problems and has fairly good gas mileage. It has a 3.4 engine, but now a couple of different mechanics tell me the head gaskets need to be other words, a lot of money. It has about 187,000 miles on it. I'm 62 and have preferred minivans in the last few years because I have an artificial hip and its easier for me to get in and out of a minivan, plus I like the extra room. Anyway, I don't think I want to put the extra money into this van and was wondering, in your opinion, which used minivan has the least problems or is the easiest to maintain. A friend suggested an used Crown Victoria, perhaps one previously used by law enforcement because he says they are pretty well 'bullet proof' or has the least maintenance problems. I really want a minivan but at the same time, prefer a vehicle I can really depend on. Please give me your opinion on this. Thank you very much for your help. blessings, Rick Harris Read Answers
