2004 Chevrolet Express 1500 Rwd 3dr Van (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
While I like the design of the van especially the exterior look and the rear doors (hinges designed to maximize access/storage)I have been disappointed with the reliability. I have had to replace the fuel pump ($600), the water pump, and one of the side windows fell out, yes fell out ($1000). The mechanic told me (kingman az dealership) there is a design flaw in the fuel pump which manifests itself primarily in higher elevation, hotter climates. He told me that Chevy knows but wont replace them. All these repairs were needed while the vehicle had less than 75,000 miles.
Exterior Design. Rear Door Hinge Design & sliding side door.
Better fuel pump, better dealer service. would like a roof rack.
