The Express cargo van is an excellent choice for the small contractor-repairman. Our truck runs 30,000 miles a year with nothing but routine maintenance, even after 10 years in service. The 5.7 V8 runs flawlessly, and effortlessly carries whatever load we have put on it.

Owned 10 years, over 185,000 miles on it, still going strong. Repairs relatively minor: brakes, belts, that sort of thing. Amazingly, still riding on the original transmission. If you need to move a lot of people and their stuff, she's beast of a workhorse. Because it is so big, the MPG is very low, around 12. But she's amazingly easy to handle, and park, and the visibility is the best of the big vans. Very reliable workhorse. Minor issues: drivers side window failed at 70K. Door lock panel fell inside door. Interior side panels got loose at about 100K. Tires are expensive to replace. But she's been one of the best vans we've owned, and we've used her hard!

I've had this vehicle for six years. Has 218,000 miles. Never had a problem with the engine. Recently started to have problem with trans. The van still runs great and starts every morning. I definitely will purchase another Express. The interior parts don't hold up too well but the performance and mechanical reliability make up for it.

The Chevy Express has been a very reliable vehicle. The quality of the vehicle is lacking in certain areas. For example, almost every interior light has failed. The dash, radio, window/lock buttons, control panel lights are mostly burned out. Engine performance and fuel economy is nothing to brag about. I expected low milage but not 15mpg on the highway unloaded. About 11 or 12 in the city.

This design is a huge improvement over
previous Chevrolet Vans. I find the
interior to be much quieter, ride to be
better, and handling to be much easier.
I do have this van in a conversion
form, but it outclasses my older GS van

This van serves the purposes I bought
it for. It drives smooth and pulls my
19 FT bow rider boat better than my old
92' F250. The clearance inside is
higher than my truck was with a cap on
it. All the seats remove easily so I
can load up with music equipment. I can
even leave seats in and bring the band
along with me. It has the 5.7 litre
motor so I have no problems on hills. I
use it to take the garbage to the dump
too. The garbage cans will fit standing
up in the back with the lids on. I
haven't owned it for very long so I
can't tell you all the many uses.
