We love the van and it's been fun to drive around using more battery than gas. After accepting the funny noises it makes we figured that's just what it does. The clicking in the left front area? The pump sound in the middle of the lower dash? No problem. It's like we don't even notice them any longer. It would be nice to know what the noises are though. LOL We get a full charge at night for less than a buck with our electric plan, keep the van sparkly clean and enjoy it every day with the family.
