Love my van!!
My GMC Savana is a conversion van that looks and runs great. I use it locally as well as travelling with the family. It is very comfortable for long trips.
I purchased this van (extended cargo 2500 series) new in '99 and have about 70,000 virturally trouble free miles on it. I'm retired and use it to tow a lt. wt. 2,000# trailer as a camper for about 6 mos./yr. As I tow in 3rd I get only 13-14 mpg. but solo, it's gotten as high as 21 with consistent 19-20 in OD. It's comfortable on long hauls out West and it's been in mountains, etc. with no noticable effect on proformance. It holds bikes, boats, supplies, books, 2 cats and my wife and It's still quiet and I love the view from the "top" in the drivers or pass. chairs. I would have loved to have had the all wheel drive option in that in the winter, I rarely take it out as I live in a high snow and hilly environment. In short, I'd have no trouble recommending this vehicle...just the caution about driving in snow conditions with hills.
I love my GMC Savana! It is great for hauling the kids around town and absolutley wonderful for trips! It is a comfortable ride every time! It has a lot of cargo room as well. It is very nice for packing all the paraphanlia that comes with children. I also love being able to buy things and not having to worry if it will fit in the van. Great overall vehicle for a family!!!
