2002 Chevrolet Express 1500 3dr Van (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

We use our van for long trips and to haul grandkids and anyhting you might need a pickup for. It is the most versatile vehicle we have ever owned and the best Chevy product, we think. Roomy, comfortable and decent on the gas (18-23) on the road. Excellent reliability overall after few electrical problems ar first. Regency conversion elegant and perfect since day one. It runs and looks like new after 3 years and almost 60000 miles. Trying for 100000 before getting another one. Much better bargain than large SUV.


Favorite Features

Dual leather captain's chairs, dual zone A/C, sound/TV/DVD systems, storage space for all your junk, great fake wood everywhere, lots and lots of room to stretch out.


Suggested Improvements

I wish this model had ABS brakes. Larger mirrors that did not shake would have been nice since there are a few blind spots as cars approach from the rear.

2002 Chevrolet Express 1500 3dr Van (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

Have a Family of 8 and needed a replacement for our Suburban that was totaled by a drunk. Equity in Suburban to little to replace with same. Opted for a basic Conversion Van. Quad Seating, rear bench folds into a bed. 5L V-8. Result is very nice ride, and better value for the money. Conversion adds insulation which greatly reduces interior noise from road. 7100 lb GVWR is plenty, and with seats removed can haul massive cargo. 20% better mpg than Suburban - 17 vs 14, more living space. Large picture windows allow toddler in car seat excelent view of world outside. 6ft7 son can sit anywhere and have plenty of room. Great for long distance travel.


Favorite Features

V8 power. Lots and Lots of room Conversion Features 4 wheel ABS Excelent apparent value for price paid. Chevy Truck longevity record. Appearance


Suggested Improvements

I am used to the 42 gal tank in the Suburban, so to me 31 gal is a bit small - but.. Wider side mirrors.

2002 Chevrolet Express 1500 3dr Van (4.3L 6cyl 4A)


Review

At first I was intimidated by the size, but the fuel economy wasn't so different- better than same sized SUVs, and after driving it a few times it became very comfortable. It really is like a "covered, air conditioned pickup". The Vortec engine is the same used on Chevy's trucks, and the feel is very trucky. The passenger tires and suspension make the ride very comforable, more so than a truck.


Favorite Features

Lots of room, easy acces by walking from the front row to the rear - good if we have a child we need to strap in the second row. Great visibility from so high up.


Suggested Improvements

The doors sound hollow when shut. Could use insulation added in the doors. Understandable perhaps on a cargo van, but not acceptable for passenger van.

Review

I love my van -- its a base Express 1500 with carpeting and that's about it, but wow, what a lot of space in the interior, for FAR less than any SUV that even comes close in interior space, and all rear seats can be removed for a cavernous interior. Really.


Favorite Features

Good feel to the 5.0 powerplant, well thought out interior design. Cheap for what you get.


Suggested Improvements

Some interior materials are a bit cheesy, but when you look carefully, even a Camry has the odd plasticky bit.
