A decent full size van


Since I have got the van I have had several problems. I needed a new serpentine belt.

Muffler rusted out and had to be replaced.

Starter blew out last month.

The water pump is now leaking.

General Comments:

It great on long trips, tons of room for people, and all sorts of gear.

It has good power and can move pretty good for a 2 ton truck.

I drinks up the gas, and it is pretty scary to fill up its 30 gallon tank.

I'm disappointed with its reliability. I have owned many Chevy's in the past that you couldn't kill and that never broke down.

Would you buy another car from this manufacturer? Don't Know
