As a family living in Kuwait - yeeeup, thaaat Kuwait - we find our Chevy G20s super reliable and very easy to run. Space, simplicity, and durability are out of this world. In a country where oil literally oozes out of the dirt, fuel economy is not exactly top of mind....ever. But it would have been great to have more efficient (and maybe quieter) AC system. Here's the real good news - we have two of these vans, one a short wheel base and the one rated here is a standard hightop V8. Buying this as a trusty second or third vehicle is a no-brainer. Best, Mike
Squared design makes for easy towndriving, V8 is super powerful and helps a lot when doing highway speeds. Crazy drivers in Kuwait are quickly put behind you with the lusty ol' 350 purring away, it's just never stressed. Great gear changes, electric windows that's simply foolproof. Nice.
OK, well, how do you improve a 20yo truck or van. There's so much here that's great, but two things would have been appreciated. The AC system, when it works and the ambient temperatures are ok, its fine, and secondly the dustproofing, virtually impossible to dustproof this vehicle. But hey, wash it!
