When my diesel van was new, from 1 to 3 yrs it had engine problems, transmission, alternator, sliding door, and few other problems, but they eventually got fixed. It is now pretty reliable except for the alternator belt has flown off 3 times. Despite the problems I've had, I love my van! It tows great! I have no problems passing any other truck type vehicles on any mountain passes. My husband agrees it out performs his 1997 4x4 dually Chevy diesel truck, except there is no 4wheel drive. I can honestly say this vehicle has enhanced my life, because of its towing abilities and the inside room it provides. I've learned to live with the cheap interior. I will buy this vehicle again, with 4wheel drive.

I have a Glavel (AutoForm) conversion
with 75,000 miles. Very nice for kids
for travel and camper. Lots of problems
including: new transmission (3,000
miles), new dash board cluster, broken
CD, broke power attenna, new power
window motors, dash replaced twice,
failed water pump, failed AC, 3
batteries, brakes every 14,000 miles,
I purchased a used 98 Savana conversion
van last week and I can't stop driving
THe leather seats are very comfortable
and leg room is excellent.
I made my first road trip to San Diego
and cruised at 85mph and got 15 miles

This is my secound GMC. I bought this
one new and paid almost $35,000. The
price was a little step, but it is
very dependable. I have only need a
few minor repare and they were covered
under warranty. This is a great van
and I am very satisfied.
