2004 Chevrolet Express 3500 Rwd 3dr Ext Van (6.0L 8cyl 4A)
This van handles like a van should! I
was told to watch out because it would
be hard to drive, and would feel like a
tractor trailer going down the road,
but boy am I happy I went with my
instinct on this one. I give this van a
10 on everything. It is a real pleasure
to drive, with great visibility,
handling, and a great turning radius
for such a long van. My only problem
with it is I wish I had measured my
garage before I bought it, because it
just doesn't fit. I am happily
sacrificing the garage for this fine
piece of equipment though.
My wife is shorter than I am and
partially blind. I thought she wouldn't
be able to see very well, but oh was I
wrong, EXCELLENT visibility! I also
love the headlights, they do a
wonderful job. Then the 6.0 motor, with
plenty of power, and excellent gas
mileage, its like a rock!
The one option I was disappointed that
Chevrolet does not offer on this model
is the drivers side rear door. (
similar to mini vans) I wish they would
offer it as an
option. It is available on the non
extended models, but not on ext.
