1996 GMC Savana G1500 3dr Van

Review

This is a typical GM product. It looks alright on paper, but in real world use, it falls flat on it's face. This vehicle has been beset by problems from day one. The built-in TV/VCP will short out the rest of the interior lights. It is on it's 3rd transmission. The rear differential is going out (clack clack clack!). The intake manifold has cracked. The fuel pump has died. The brakes are garbage. Even the oil dipstick is rusty. That's sad.

Best Features

The factory jack that comes with the car is identical to the one GM includes in their sedans. It is completely inadequate for lifting a full sized van. It's pretty funny they even bothered to include it.

Worst Features

There is no way to improve this vehicle without a clean sheet redesign using modern technology. No push rods, no drum brakes, no leaf springs, no live axles. This van is just garbage.
