2000 GMC Savana Van G1500 SLE 3dr Van


Review

So far so good with this van. It is a big vehicle and sits high off the road. I have the 5.0 ltr motor which gives it decent power. A little noisy when you punch it to merge with fast traffic. Brakes are spongy but work when required. It is great if you have lots of kids. It seats 6 people very nicely. Very roomy and the heater is great. Good handling but tends to pull in high winds. It is a highway cruiser vehicle however, it handles nicely in town. Gas mileage is great. I like it a lot. I am glad I bought it. GMC makes a good quality vehicle which is why I bought this make of van. I have not yet drove it in deep snow which will be the real test for handling.


Best Features

Very roomy vehicle. It will be great for long trips in the summer. Lots of leg room and easy to move around in.


Worst Features

Firm up the brakes a little.

2000 GMC Savana Van G3500 SLE 3dr Ext Van


Review

We have owned our GMC Savana for almost five years now. The van is always a pleasure to drive. I have a large family and we designed the van to meet our needs. The van was the first extended van the conversion company created. It sets nine, six captain chairs and a fold down bench in the back. The van glides down the highway and has had only one recent mechanical problem. The sending unit in the gas tank went bad. My only interior problem has been the interior panels on the back door staying in place when they are closed. My everyday MPG is about 12.5 and trips are between 14.5 to 16. I believe thats very good for a 1 ton extended van fully loaded with a large cargo carrier on top.


Best Features

Good visibility while driving. Quiet smooth ride with long wheel base. Tows loads with ease. Easy to get in and out of, none of the kids have to climb over other seats to get to their places. Stereo system is excellent.


Worst Features

Thicker sheet metal on rear doors and front hood. Got stuck once and during the process of pushing just pressing on the areas dented the metal. Door edge guards to protect doors when opening them. Standard custom van options from factory without having to go to a custom van shop.

2000 GMC Savana Van G2500 SLE 3dr Van


Review

Pros: Great Horsepower, and durability. The van had been in 3 fenderbenders and only had scratches. Great for bad weather and loads. Don't get is confused with a 1/2 ton capacity van. Cons: very thin window glass, bad sound proofing, hollow doors other than front doors. Engine pings (the owners manual says it's OK if it does, but anyone that knows engines knows thats a load of crap, especially for a engine that only has 24000 miles. Sensitive to roll and yaw when loaded down (high center of gravity).


Best Features

None
