This is my fourth Chevy. I have had two major repairs on this van, both on family trips out of state. Around 20K I had the transmission rebuilt. At 56K I had the alternator replaced twice. Imagine driving across SC and GA on a 90+ degree day with a failing alternator and no a/c. I have had countless problems with cruise control, power locks, windows, mirrors etc. This is with only 62k mileage. This will be my last Chevy until their relability is improved.
It is powerful and a workhorse. I can easily haul 6 adults or 4'x8'pieces of drywall, etc.
Don't buy a car built right before a strike. I put larger tires on it. It didn't behave well in high speed turns. Reliability!!!
