2005 Chevrolet Express Cargo 2500 Rwd 3dr Van (4.8L 8cyl 4A)
For a van it handled well and was very comfortable to drive. Overall excellent reliability. A few glitches in the side door hinges and with a couple of the interior lights. Fuel economy varied dramatically by driving habits. Ranged from 12 to 22 mpg city to highway. Drivetrain reliability was excellent, with minimal expenses for maintenance or repairs in about 50K miles.
Good handling and brakes. Good engine, and reasonable fuel economy.
Stereo selection could use improvement. Door hinges on side doors bind up, and the recall helped, but didn't entirely eliminate binding. Oh yeah - and we could use faster warmup in the Chicago winters.
