Problems started with a weeping water pump (2001), progressed to burst radiator in 2006, and currently a leaking intake manifold gasket (huge problem to get to, replace -- did it myself because no mechanic would want to tackle this without huge labor costs). Some conspiracy theorists blame Dex-cool; don't know, but coolant problems (along with two wiring problems) have plagued my van.

Most Reliable Auto I've Owned

by from Madison, WI on July 19, 2007

Strong powertrain. Great gas mileage (up to 22 MPG with my 1500) Minor fixes which also have minor costs. Easy to service. This is the best van on the market today. I know I am a mechanic!

Great family Van for long trips. Got 16 MPG on trips. Great panoramic view from front seats when traveling. Road handling great on curving mountain roads. Power was never an issue. Just oil changes and no issues at all. Even original tires look new after 50K miles. Towed a car once and did not feel like there was anything back there. I drive a Honda Civic around town, but the Chevy is a great trip car (van) to load the family in for traveling. With 4 kids, each one had a bench for themselves for the trip and was a great trip stress reducer. I have had it over 5 years and it has been the best family investment for together times on the road.
