Powerful Vortec engines and some unique features make the Savana (and its twin, the Chevrolet Express) pretty much the only game in town if you're looking for a full-size van that doesn't look and drive like it was designed two decades ago.
by kelly on Dec 29, 2004 Vehicle: 2004 GMC Savana Cargo 3500 Rwd 3dr Ext Van (6.0L 8cyl 4A)
This vehicle has been nothing but
problems. Within the 8 mos. of owning
this van, both front bearings had to be
replaced, the alignment was wrong from
the factory, the rear seal is now
leaking. The lifters tick. The wiring
harness fell out from underneath the
passenger side of the dash. The
steering has made noise from day 1, and
it happens everytime the wheel is
turned. I've consulted with many other
expediting company owners and they gave
the same outlook on these 2004 GMC
vans. One word sums it up, JUNK.
