    2014 Toyota Sienna with a VMI conversion

    My insurance company is giving me a hard time about getting a new van. We have racked up 113,000 miles in 5 years. The in floor ramp system and the kneeling system do not work consistently. When it rains you can hear water moving inside the floor. The radio system shorts out. I'm taking it Monday to a local shop and they are going to check everything out from front to back side to side to get a quote on how much it will cost to fix everything. They will have it for 5 days. The insurance company is also paying for a rental van for the 5 days. Any suggestions on what they definitely should check? If I am going to be stuck with this van it needs to be back to new condition.

        What was their justification for not paying for a new one?

            Check the rubber boot that encloses the lowering cable that's attached to the rear axle, the original one tears up and exposes a large opening under the rear seat into the sub-floor area. I replaced my boot with a motorcycle fork boot.

              Well for 29 years I thought workers comp went by my life care plan. I have received a new van every 5-6 years. This time they said we will see how much it costs to fix it and go from there. They have already put 3k into it over the past 6 months. What I don't understand is things are going to continue to go bad. But that is all on them.

                Thanks for the info. I will let the shop know about that.

                  Yeah I am totally confused here in Florida. They have always bought me a new van. Why would they want to spend thousands of dollars on a vehicle with over 113,000 miles? They also asked the shop how long the van will last after fixing it. There is no way to know.
