Great minivan for a family

by from Chicago, IL on May 25, 2017

This is almost perfect. The only thing I would change about it is add remote start and AWD for the Chicago weather.

We bought this van used just before I left on deployment. Being the typical guy, I was skeptical and quite hesitant on the purchase. C'mon, what guy actually wants to be driving a mini-van? This baby drives smooth as silk. We took it on a family trip (approximately 1700 miles) when I returned and I was quite surprised at the comfort and performance. My wife absolutely LOVES it! I would buy another in a heartbeat!

Going on 12 years with my 2000 GLS. I have owned many GM's but none this trouble free relative to miles driven. At 142,000 miles so far I have replaced the water pump at about 130k (easy and cheap to have done), spark plugs and wires at 100k (really difficult on this engine), rear air springs (cheap as well), and a thermostat (expensive and difficult) way back at about 90k. I have towed over 4000 lbs with it for thousands of miles and never had a problem. The heated drivers seat went out at about 100k but the passenger side still works. Here is the most amazing part. The air conditioning has never been serviced, ever and still works perfectly. That in and of itself deserves a GM hall of fame award. All in all this minivan has far exceeded my expectations and I still drive it every day to commute to work. Have never had a GM this reliable since my mid 90's Bonneville. Even the leather seats and are decent quality, (no rips or tears yet) and some of the soft touch materials are a nice suprise. I realize if you are reading this review you are looking to buy a pretty old car but I wouldn't hesitate to do it again.

I absolutely LOVE my van. It gives me the space I need with active kids and the reliability of knowing that my family is in a good, safe vehicle. I love the ease of the sliding doors and I use the DVD players all of the time. I highly recommend this vehicle.

I'm the 2nd owner of this van GLS model. After 113,000 miles there have been no issues other than routine maintenance. The interior is well appointed. The leather has held up like new. The power sliding doors are very useful and still work like new. I get about 21mpg overall. Performance and handling are good/average. It doesn't handle rough roads very smoothly, but it's almost always driven on pavement. Acceleration is suprisingly good. I wish it had more storage in the rear. Overall this has been a very good reliable vehicle, and is a good value when compared to other brands.
