Follow-up: I've had this jack for five years now in the back of my van. I've used it about 6 to 10 times a year since I've owned it. Used it just yesterday, in a downtown parking garage. It is beat-up, scratched up, has dirty wheels but still works fine. I have never had to do anything to it. No jack oil, nothing. It is a bit too short to lift the whole front of the van up (13 inch max lift) but I made a four inch thick spacer out of wood with a metal plate (blank electrical box cover plate, 4x4 inch) on both sides. Metal plates keep the wood from splitting or getting gouged up by distributing the weight of the van more evenly across the wood. With the spacer, the lift range is about 17 inches, enough to get the front of the van off the ground to get jack stands under both frame rails.
One thing to keep in mind though is that it is important to chock the wheels of the vehicle. On asphalt, the little wheels on the jack will gouge a chunk out of the asphalt if the car moves even a little. This can cause the jack to roll. Yet another reason not to ever get under a car supported by just a jack. This is not really a fault of the jack, just something to be aware of.
All in all, a great little jack for the price.

The welds are sloppy, but the thing is light and will lift my van off the ground high enough to get jack stands under it. You have to do one side at a time, but that's no big deal. Easier to use than a scissor jack and cheap. I got it for $16 (on sale for $19.99 + a 20% off coupon). Car will come down FAST when you turn the release valve, so make sure the tire is on securely!
