2003 GMC Savana 1500 Rwd 3dr Van (4.3L 6cyl 4A)
We have enjoyed this vehicle for the last 14000 miles. It was a conversion by Cobra, nothing fancy, just the best seats available, no TV or mood lights. Fuel economy has ranged from 12.5 mpg in sub-zero city driving to 20.2 mpg on 55 mph rural roads. The only failure to date is the windsheild weather stripping, which came loose while on the interstate. The dealer made the repair, eventually. GM treats the option list like all Savanna's will be plumbing trucks. No MP3 cd player, no XM sattelite controller, no trip computer. All of these item are available on the Yukon/Suburban, which this van is based on. 5.3 V8. It was the same price as the Toyota Sienna, but the space won out.
Quiet interior, visibility, towing capability, 8 doors. Limited slip and antilock brakes work well in MN
Offer the same options as Yukon. Offer heated mirrors and zone under the wipers, as DC minivans do (helpful in areas where it snows).
