Classic, old school, GM truck.

I got my Savana (Same as Chevy Express) Cargo van to use occasionally like a pickup. I prefer the enclosed van to keep cargo dry. I don't use it much, but I like it a lot. The old style is much more solid than the newer euro-style vans, and much better looking. It's worse on gas of course, but has the power to pull. The 2500 I have rides a bit rough, with 60-80 lb of air in the tires! But it handles and runs very nice for a work vehicle. I've had no trouble at all in 6 years. This year was my first maintenance repair, taking brakes, battery, and a TPS resetting. It's only got 22k on it, so you may need brakes sooner. I love the truck for all these reasons, but especially because it's the classic look from a simpler, more sane time.


Best van I ever owned.

The van has met all of my needs. Runs and drives great. Rides very nicely for a work van. Has nice running boards-remote start and keyless entry.


Pretty Nice

I bought this 2014 Savana and it's pretty nice for construction and family car i am a construction worker so i use it for that and i transport my family and we like it for both.
