2014 Chevrolet Express AWD V8 310 HP Optional Cruise and A/C OK, this is a van, so what can you expect? It hasn't broke down...yet, but that is about it. This is technically my dad's car, but he agrees. I learnt to drive in it, but I have driven other vehicles so these are my pros and cons: CONS: Up steep hills, the engine revs and whines for a good bit, the the whole van jerks when it finally downshifts. Head restraints for the benches? Not here. It sounds like a bus when driven right away. The cabin is LOUD The exterior styling in BLAH When I move my knee up and it hits the dash, the whole thing lifts a bit the sinks back down. The interior is slabs of black plastic Heat vents Flimsy and inexact The resume function for cruise control has issues, so you have to reset it every time 5 cup holders for twelve passengers No USB ports No AUX port Not even a CD player. Scant interior storage Things slide all over the vinyl floor. Seats Squishy Hit your butt on car seat anchors over bumps and they actually hurt. Rearmost lap belts just get tangled Sticky seatbelts Rearmost seat access Catches wind Ride feels like your bull riding PROS: Headroom AWD (Not available anymore) Leg room Space

Best Van for the money

My 3rd in this series. 1st was a 1978 GMC 2500 that took me 440,000 miles. Second was a 1992. Powerful and useful for business and pleasure. Newest version is 2014 Express 2500. Tows 10,000 lbs. Hauled 4000lbs of test weights inside with no trouble. Got 19 mpg on a 500 mile r/t between DC and Columbia, S.C. (empty). Love the style, would buy again
