Options and Equipment

This began as a top-level model (plus has options) named "Luxury" which has the wonderful 4.2 liter 6 cylinder (great combo of power and decent MPG) and auto with overdrive. Because this is a very high trim level, it is amazing how fancy and functional it is. Has a very long list of features due to being the "Luxury" model, such as common power and convenience items of: power windows, locks, mirrors and tilt and cruise. Plus fancy features such as: leather seats; middle row captains chairs; 3-zone digital climate control (front and rear ventilation); fancy stereo; dual power front seats; 16 inch alloys wheels; upgraded interior and exterior trim; rear AND front sonar bumpers; ABS; much more. Plus, this one was ordered with virtually every option available and so in addition to the highly equipped "Luxury" package, this one has optional features such as: factory video system; alloy wheels; floor console in front area between seats; trip computer; upgraded stereo CD; security system; power hatch; power side doors; side airbags.

This was converted when brand new by the premium innovator, designer and builder of rear entry minivans, called VISION. This company is now a division of Braun, which is the largest company in the world regarding mobility vans and equipment. The conversion has these major features:

* Power operated rear hatch: no need to muscle the hatch up or down, its all easy

* Simplest possible rear ramp: ready for the wheelchair to load or unload in seconds. It is light weight aluminum and has a nice big handle and its easy to fold up or down, with an assist-spring.

* Deeply lowered floor channel: this creates exceptional entry clearance and interior headroom. This channel goes all the way up to just behind the front seats, allowing parking the wheelchair very far forward, or anywhere ranging from that forward point, all the to the rear hatch area.

* Various anchor point locations: many locations exist in the floor are in order to attach anchor straps to

* During our extensive rejuvenation process, there was new rubber-like flooring installed. As is our standard procedure, an EZ-Lock wheelchair securement unit has been unbolted, in order to have the new flooring without undesirable holes in it. The EZ-Lock unit is ready to be installed wherever desired, if the new owner does not want to use manual anchor straps to secure the wheelchair

* Includes 4 wheelchair anchor straps

This vehicle is 'Certified': There are a combined 76 mechanical and cosmetic aspects included in the Wheelchair Van Oasis Certification process. A foundational step of the rejuvenation process is when each vehicle receives an extensive inspection by an objective, independent  third- party service and repair facility.  Suggested service, repairs and improvements are then performed by various professional specialists. The result is your assurance  that each of the 76 aspects meets or exceeds the condition level of good, or satisfactory.

Each van does of course have various elements which exceed the promised level of good or satisfactory, which the Certified program assures. Some are brand new improvements performed during rejuvenation.  And others are obvious service or repairs performed recently, prior to my ownership.  As for those, I only list here those positives which are certain, based on my either having a receipt, and/or due to being obvious to the inspecting-mechanic. I refer to these as NEW OR RECENTLY SERVICED ASPECTS
