Too many problems
By Don on
2001 Chevrolet Express Cargo 3500 3dr Ext Van (5.7L 8cyl 4A)
I bought this van used with 21000 miles on it. It has been maintained with all synthetic fluids since I have owned it. I had to replace the transmission at 189000 miles and once again at 241000 miles. Fuel pump had to be replaced at 140000 miles. Shift cable replaced at 135000 miles. Most of the miles have been highway miles and the van has never been driven hard. Many repairs over the years, but the main complaint is the poor transmission quality for such a heavy duty vehicle. Still driving the van with over 250000 miles on it. The engine is as good as ever.
Wide opening rear cargo doors.
Seats are very uncomfortable for any length of time. Make the transmission more durable.
