2001 GMC Savana Cargo Van 3500 3dr Van (5.7L 8cyl 4A)
Every year the same thing happens with this vehicle. The rear seals go and with it the brakes. Now it won't start and last time it would not start it was a water pump and other items the spray ruined like belts and harnesses.
Fix the rear bearings, and make the engine compartment bigger so a mechanic can work on it without killing himself
2001 GMC Savana Cargo Van 2500 3dr Van (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
The 2001 2500 was the first vehicle I
factory ordered as soon as it was
available. Although it took nearly 10
weeks to deliver I found that the
quality is even higher than my 1997.
The Savana 2500 gives me a smooth ride
and power to spare. While the mileage
could be better, at 16 MPG it's way
better than the 10+MPG I was getting
my the used mid '80s vans. The only
problem I've experienced is that the
seat belt does not always retract and
sometimes gets caught in the door. I
ordered the power heated mirrors which
are helpful having no rear windows.
For the money I will definitely be
looking at the GMC again next time
Power and size, I can smoke the tires
and even big SUV get out of my way.
The large windshield and door windows
are much better than the competitions
models and combined with the power
mirrors make manuvering without any
rear windows much easier.
